Favorite part about college:
“I love getting to meet so many new and different people who come from all over the world and have different stories and backgrounds. I also love being able to explore the area since Pitt is right around the city and a variety of districts so there’s always something to do. Pitt has so many different things to get involved in and it’s fun to put myself out there while being in a different atmosphere than high school.”
What do you miss about North Penn?
“I miss seeing my friends everyday and going to high school events whether it was prom or sports games because some of the best memories I have are from them. I also miss the 30 minute drive I had to and from school since I don’t need to drive in the city.”
Advice to High Schoolers:
“It sounds cheesy but enjoy every moment you have in high school and take advantage of all the great things North Penn offers. Three years go by so fast and you want to look back and say that you truly had the best high school experience. Get involved with something at North Penn because it’s where you’ll find some of your closest friends and may give you a passion you didn’t know you had. Also, take advantage of home cooked meals while you can because dining halls aren’t the best.”
