What other colleges did you apply to? Lycoming University
What do you like best about being a student here? The emphasis on undergraduate research

What is there to do for fun outside of class? We have so many clubs here at Behrend that you can easily find something to do that you enjoy.

What are your plans for after you graduate? I plan on getting my master’s degree in College Student Personnel to work for a university in either the Office of Student Activities or Residence Life.
What advice do you have for students who are looking for colleges? Visit the colleges and talk to students that go there because they can tell you what the school is really like.
