Why Penn State?
"I chose Penn State because nothing compares to that feeling when you walk on campus. Everyone is so spirited and full of energy, it would be hard not to fall in love with PSU. I also felt like it was a school that would allow me to be successful academically as well as in gymnastics since it is a great school for both. I am so excited to be part of such an amazing team with amazing coaches!"
