Meet Alyssa

AlyssaHometown: Wattsburg, Pa.

Major: Marketing with a Communication minor

Campus activities: THON and admissions tour guide

Interests: Listening to music and spending all of my spare time with friends and family.

Favorite Movie: Simon Birch

Favorite Music: I listen to all music, but normally rap or something that I can dance to. Along with Elton John!

Why did you choose Penn State Behrend? I loved that it was close to home and the campus is so beautiful. Also when I came to look at the school, everyone was extremely friendly which I liked!

What other colleges did you apply to? Mercyhurst College, Thiel College, and Allegheny College

What do you like best about being a student here? The professors know my name, communicate with me as a person and take a sincere interest in my life.

What do you think about living on campus? I love it!  I have met so many people by living on campus that I don't think I would have met otherwise.

What’s your favorite food from Bruno’s or Dobbins Dining Hall? I really like the chicken wraps at Brunos, but who doesn't?

What is there to do for fun outside of class at Behrend? There are always events down in Bruno's Cafe to go to such as musicians or comedians.  I also really enjoy going to the movies that LEB sponsors!

What are your plans for after you graduate? I am still trying to figure that part out!  That’s one of the things I love about being in school; it's giving me time to experiment with different jobs and areas of study so that I can see what it is I actually want to do.

What advice do you have for students who are looking for colleges?  Pick a school where you feel comfortable. If you don't feel like you "belong," your experience isn't going to be as good as it could be.
