Favorite part about college:
“My favorite part about college was meeting people from all different kinds of backgrounds and ways of life and being able to learn from their experiences. I was fortunate enough to find an amazing group of friends who were always there to support me and helped make my first year of college so memorable.”
Miss most about North Penn:
“I miss meeting up with my friends at 7 am and taking laps around E-pod before the day began.”
Advice to high schoolers:
“Leave your dorm door open as much as you can as it is a great way to meet the people on your floor. You want to make where you live feel like home as much as possible to help with the transition from high school to college. Getting to know the people who live around you will help tremendously, as they will be there for you at 3 am with whatever crisis you may be facing. Enjoy the time you have because college will be the best years of your life.”
