LAUBACH ON PENN STATE
"Choosing a school with a prestigious academic program was the most important thing to me. I chose Penn State because a degree from The Pennsylvania State University is one of the top-recruited degrees by businesses and corporations. Graduating with a degree from an amazing university like this one is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it will allow my future job search to be broad."
