I chose Penn State Fayette because...

I love the atmosphere, the physicality of the campus, and the family bond that Fayette has. The Fayette campus is the perfect size for students like myself who do not like giant classrooms—classes are small and everything is easy to navigate. And not to mention, the campus is beautiful! I also love the feeling of family we have at Fayette, staff members know you by name and you are able to form relationships with so many people on campus! Lastly, the Penn State pride that the Fayette campus embodies makes me feel proud to be a Penn State student every time I am on campus. Between activities, events, and the atmosphere, Penn State pride is one of the best characteristics of the Fayette campus.

My advice to incoming students is...

Be prepared to experience new things and to be uncomfortable. The transition from high school to college is a big stepping stone in your life, you may be scared or uncomfortable to start, but if you are prepared your transition will be smooth. I always suggest to be open to new people and new experiences. Don't be shy! If you ever have a question, ask anyone on campus! We are all here to help!
