I chose Penn State Berks because...

This campus is so welcoming and comfortable. I have felt like I belong here ever since I set foot on campus. Everyone is so welcoming and kind within the tight-knit community. The professors are here to support you, and they want to get to know you with the small campus setting. It also helps that I am not far from home.

Advice I would give to incoming students is...

Get involved. I know that this year is extremely weird with all of the virtual components, but there are still many opportunities to get engaged and meet friends. We have a variety of clubs and organizations here to choose from, just to list a few: Campus Activities Board - THON - Black Student Union - Blue and White Society There are so many more you can check out at https://berks.psu.edu/special-interest-organizations

My most memorable Berks experience...

When I first moved in we had welcome weekend and that was so much fun! I met a huge group of friends and there were so many fun activities to do like movie night, dance parties, volleyball, ice cream social, paint night, a comedian, bounce houses, and so much more.

My favorite location on campus is...

The 3rd floor lounge in The Woods Residence Halls. It is a great place to just relax and get some homework done. There are huge windows with lots of natural light and it is very cozy spot.

I'm passionate about...
