i am a very proud penn state student. penn state is an institution that wants you to succeed. people here all this talk about college's don't care if you succeed or not, they just want your money. that may be true but as long as you apply yourself and ask for help when needed, then penn state educators will do everything they possibly can to help you with school work, internships, tutoring, note-taking, work study, and so much more. the student body is one of a kind. never have i ever seen students come together the way penn state did in support of thon or any other charitable organization like breast cancer awareness, etc. penn state is one big family, and i wouldn't have chosen anywhere else to go.

i couldn't be more content with my choice of university for undergraduate education. penn state has so much to offer for students like me who don't put a limit to their dreams: highly-ranked academics, endless extra-curricular activities, greek life, study abroad options, and more. the campus is named one of the safest in the country, and the atmosphere is so serene that i never want to leave.
