What are your general comments?

"WE ARE... PENN STATE! Don't sweat the interview. While you're there take the time to consider if Hershey, PA is where you'd like to spend the next 4 years. It's a quaint, little town where chocolate flows like the Susquehanna River. However, you're not gonna find a Chinatown, a good R&B radio station, or a Puerto Rican-day parade, so just keep that in mind. I have plenty of fluorescent orange and camo in my wardrobe, so it's not too much of an adjustment for me. Use the day to see if Penn State fits YOU. " Report Response
