Why did you choose Penn State Behrend? The location in relationship to my home, the student to teacher ratio, the size of the campus and the classes, the campus setting and activities in the local area.
What do you like best about being a student here? The small class sizes allow me to have good relationships with my professors. They know who I am even several semesters after I have had their classes.
What do you think about living on campus? I think it's something that everyone should do at least for their first year as a student here. Living on campus allows students to meet new people and make new friends. It also gives each student a better feel of what living on your own is going to be like. You have more responsibilities in your life when you aren't living with your parents.
What’s your favorite food from Bruno’s or Dobbins Dining Hall? Brunch at Dobbins.
What is there to do for fun outside of class? There are a variety of activities and clubs to do on campus. I'm personally involved with intramural sports, the school newspaper, and college Democrats. There are also many fraternities and sororities on campus as well as many other clubs and activities.
What are your plans for after you graduate? After I graduate from Behrend, I am planning on attending law school, and from there, I am going to be a practicing attorney, and then eventually go into politics.
What advice do you have for students who are looking for colleges? Tour them all. And when you think you are done touring them, tour them again. Ask questions and get involved with your tour. Don't be shy. And if you can, see if the school offers a chance for you to go and stay overnight, which will give you the true feeling of what it's going to be like living on campus every day.
