Senior Allison McCaulley recently decided to continue her education next year at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

How many colleges did you apply too?

I applied to three colleges (Mount Aloysius, Penn State, and IUP)

What made you apply to IUP?

My sister goes there, so I know a lot about the school. I like the size of the classes and the campus.

What are you planning to major in?

I’m planning to major in nursing. After I get my BSN, I want to go to graduate school to become a nurse practitioner.

What made you choose this specific major?

I chose this major because I’ve always loved the medical field and helping people. I want to be able to save lives.

What are your feelings on moving on from high school?

I’m excited to move on from high school. I like high school, but I think that it’s time for me to get away from Bellwood. I’m pretty sure I’ll always be a Blue Devil at heart!
