I am a sophomore and majoring in Biology: Genetics and Development. I will be staying at Penn State Abington until graduation.
My goal is to attend medical school after graduation and become a doctor. One thing I do to keep myself motivated in my classes is I remind myself of my goal.
Reminding myself of the reason why I am in college allows me to organize and prioritize things that I need to do.
I suggest everyone try to make a goal for why you are in college. It will make the journey easier.
Some of my hobbies are traveling around the world, hiking in the greatest mountains, and playing soccer with my friends.
The advice I give to fellow students is simply don't be afraid to ask for help and talk to your professors.
It's a great way to build connections.
I enjoy working with kids, reading, writing, all forms of community involvement, board games, taking long walks, and playing with dogs.
There are multiple resources at Penn State Abington geared towards building a well-rounded student, these resources include: the Learning Center, student-run organizations, opportunities to get involved, professors, fellow students, advisors, and the advising center.
College is the time to explore so my advice is to use them all!

I am currently a sophomore and majoring in Finance. I am planning to go to University Park to finish my finance degree. My hobbies include photography, vlogging, designing, and stocks. I own a clothing brand, zreverfashion (you can search it on Instagram).
The most important advice that I will give to a fellow student is to look at things in a long period. We are sometimes stuck looking at the small things so we forgot to see the bigger picture.
Don’t only think of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Start thinking in weeks, months, and years. This vision will keep you motivated and achieving a bigger goal.
