On Choosing Penn State>/b>
"I chose Penn State because of the outstanding balance between athletics and academics. I wanted a school that I could swim at the top level and also be guaranteed a job after four years and Penn State fulfilled all of my wishes. Penn State felt like home from the first time I stepped on campus."
