My most memorable Berks experience...

Meeting my best friends. I thought I wasn't going to be able to fit in and make friends easily. Turns out it went really well and I was able to make some lifelong friends!

I chose Penn State Berks because...

I wanted to come to a small school, but where I could still venture out and meet new people. Berks was perfect because I was close to home if I needed anything, but still on a very diverse campus with people from all different states and even countries!

Advice I would give to incoming students is...

don't be shy to step out of your comfort zone. When I first got to Berks, I was nervous because I didn't think I could fit in anywhere. There are so many clubs and different things to be a part of that it made my experience so much easier. The thing is to try something different, such as a club you never thought you'd be interested in. You will end up finding out so much about yourself!

My favorite location on campus is...

cyber cafe. This is my favorite location because I drink coffee every single day and to be able to have easy access to Starbucks on campus is awesome. I also hang out here with my friends sometimes when we have breaks between classes instead of going back to my dorm.

I'm passionate about...

Traveling and Seeing New Places AHS body building Outdoors Adventure food/nutrition Family and Friends
