[ Music ]>>There’s just a sensation that you get from being at Penn State.>>The best part about Penn State is just being a part of the family.>>We are –>>There’s never a dull moment ever.>>There’s just a vibe. Everybody’s so energetic.>>It’s like Penn State everywhere and I think that’s so cool.>>I chose the University Park because there’s no place I would rather be. [ Music ]>>It’s such a nice atmosphere here because it is the main campus. It’s so nice. Like look at outside today. Old Main Lawn and it’s beautiful right now.>>My favorite part about a Penn Stater is how great it’s looked upon for the education aspect. Being labeled as a Penn Stater is fantastic. [ Music ]>>The teachers definitely are great and I feel like that’s the most important part about being in school.>>We may have some bigger classrooms and yeah, I have lectures where there’s up to 400 people but if you go to your professor’s office hours, they’re going to be willing to work with you with whatever you need.>>It’s important for students to be comfortable in coming and talking to faculty, research people, et cetera across the campus. That’s where a lot of learning goes on. And it’s also the most rewarding for us.>>Yeah exactly.>>So you begin to have somewhat of a mentor that one on one time with professor is huge. [ Music ]>>Well most of the freshmen live in East Residence halls. So it’s kind of nice. Everybody, all the freshmen are together. You’ll meet your roommate. You’ll be friends with everyone on your floor which is really neat.>>I love it. I have an awesome floor whom I’m very, very close with.>>You’ll see kids out playing sand volleyball on the courts or they’ll be playing Frisbee or throwing a football around just in the quads which is really cool just to kind of get to know the other kids in your dorm and just be a Penn State student. [ Music ]>>There’s a lot of options for eating. There’s the dining commons at each residence hall. It’s kind of cool because you can have an app on your phone that tells you the menus that the dining services are providing each day. Then there’s also different little cafes and then each residence hall. There’s kind of a like little market that you can go to. So you can kind of choose where you want to go and make your selection according to that. [ Music ]>>There’s clubs for basically anything you’re interested in. I mean there’s a Harry Potter Appreciation Club which I think is the coolest thing in the world. [ Music ]>>Well I’ve been involved with horses since I was 5. I’ve been riding since then and I just want to continue it into college. And the Equestrian [inaudible] really, it’s a really fun outlet to just get away from all the academics and all the stress. [ Music ]>>The goal of the Lunar Lion Team is to put Penn State on the moon, plain and simple. This is definitely a stepping stone to broaden our educational and Penn State’s research capabilities in the space industry. [ Music ]>>Being on a team is really just coming in and you automatically have 15 sisters caring on their tradition that is Penn State volleyball. And knowing that just being a part of that is a really incredible feeling.>>Anything you wanted to do here, you can do it. It’s really a great place to be. [ Music ]>>Being a Penn State the alumni network is so good and I feel like getting a job will be easy but also the fact that there’s so much school pride here. And it’s just awesome. You always see people walking around with their Penn State sweatshirts and everything. And I think that’s so cool. [ Music ]>>I think it’s impacted everything about my life. I think just coming here, making new friends, it’s really a great step in the independent direction. I felt myself grow up in a way but then at the same time, really maintain the core values of who I am and apply that to who I want to be. [ Music ]>>Penn State has shaped my entire life. I guess my favorite part about being a Penn Stater is how great it’s looked upon for the education aspect and I think that’s what’s going to take me the longest way after my college career.
