How many colleges did you apply to?


What made you apply to Penn Tech?

I knew it was a good school and it was very nice. They also had my major, and it is a Penn State branch.

What are you planning on majoring in?


What made you choose this specific major?

I’ve always wanted to go into the health field, and I think Medical Imaging is really cool.

What do you think will be some of the major difference between college and high school?

Being able to do whatever I want between classes. I know it will be a lot harder, especially the classes, and the professors won’t help or care like high school teachers do.

What are your feelings on moving on from Bellwood-Antis High School?

I’m excited to move on and start a new chapter in my life. It’ll be a lot different, but I’m ready to move on and face challenges that will get me to my future. It will be sad leaving B-A and I will definitely miss all the memories, friends, and teachers.
