I feel quite excited about stepping into the professional world, but leaving Great Valley has been a little sad. The Great Valley staff was amazing and helped me navigate through the degree. Personally, Penn State Global Engagement and Leadership Experience was a great experience where I made some amazing friends for a lifetime. Professionally, being in the LaunchBox Student Startup Project was my best experience. I edited videos, created content, and hosted some cool podcasts which will be released later. Therefore, it was the most joyous and amazing experience.

I had an enriching experience at Penn State Great Valley. It was a mix of classroom knowledge along with the real-world implementation at the Nittany AI Challenge 2022. This university-wide competition gave me the opportunity to connect with bright and driven people who were very helpful and guided us in every possible way towards our victory. The administration and staff from the Great Valley campus were equally helpful and encouraging in this journey.

All the students are really motivated to make sure that they do well. The experience at Great Valley was really good because this campus doesn’t have a whole lot of people and that’s what makes it special. It makes it an experience where the professors can pay enough attention to you, and you can pay enough attention to them. I think it is very important for people to know that whenever you ask for help, it is there. Everyone at Great Valley has always been very helpful and very, very passionate about actually providing the perfect holistic educational experience.

Penn State Great Valley provides international students with front-line, hands-on professional education. I engaged with professors and other students who are working in the financial field. The campus is located outside of Philadelphia in the Great Valley Corporate Center where students have access to renowned financial firms like Vanguard, SEI, and others. My Penn State education made it possible for me to secure a position as a long-term contractor with Vanguard, which may not have been possible had I attended any other institution.

Coming to Penn State Great Valley for my Master of Software Engineering was a good choice. I got the chance to explore different fields of technology and grow both professionally and academically. During the program, I was exposed to diverse opportunities and I made sure I capitalized on every single one. Working with professors to design and develop course modules for the upcoming Mobile Computing course made me understand the intricacy of academia. My overall experience has been positive and worthwhile. I am excited to be a part of the Blue and White Society and a proud Penn Stater!
