Hi everyone! My name is Nicole and I am a Senior here at Penn State. I am a student in the School of Communications and I am a Media Studies Major with a minor in Psychology. Some interesting facts about me are that I am a sister of Delta Gamma and last spring semester I studied abroad in Barcelona. I hope that my blog posts are helpful.

Welcome to Happy Valley! My name is Niccia and I’m a senior print journalism student at Penn State enrolled in the College of Communications. At Penn State, I’m heavily involved with the College of Communications Student Council as an Executive Board member. I work closely with the dean of the College of Communications, as well as with my adviser Stephanie Fuss in assistance with recruiting and admissions events. I will graduate in May with the goal of coming back to Penn State as an Admissions Recruiter. I am also the THON Co-Chair for the College of Communications Student Council.

I am currently a junior majoring in journalism from Puerto Rico. At school I’m a member of the Epsilon Sigma Alpha service organization and the Penn State Philanthropy Council. I love to cook and at home I spend most of my days reading on the beach. I hope my journey here at Penn State will give you insight into what this wonderful school has to offer!

I am a sophomore majoring in communications from Harrisburg, PA. I am a member of the Rules and Regulations THON Committee and a part of Greek Life. I love to read all different kinds of books, bake cookies, be outside (when the weather is nice) and play tennis. I hope that my Penn State story will inspire you to be apart of our #unrivaled family!
