Newly Admitted Students Share Their Excitement

The excitement of receiving an acceptance letter or email is an unbeatable feeling. With Penn State World Campus, you can work toward your degree from anywhere, no matter what stage of your life you’re in — that’s also something to celebrate. New and returning students often celebrate their admission on social media, and we decided to compile what they had to say. Here are some recently accepted students sharing their exciting news: 

“I am thrilled to share that I will be joining the class of 2023 at Penn State University this fall to pursue my Master’s in Engineering Management! I am looking forward to advancing my knowledge, building skills, and working alongside professors and classmates. I cannot wait to start my journey at Penn State in the U.S.” — Marcio V., Master of Engineering Management

“I am extremely grateful and honored to have been accepted to Penn State World Campus, where I will be pursuing my MBA. With Penn State being my #1 choice, I can’t wait to start!” — Steve G., Smeal Online MBA 

“After graduating from the University of Miami in 2018 and taking a break from school, I’m ecstatic to announce I’ll be pursuing my Master of Professional Studies in Strategic Communications at Penn State World Campus this fall! Couldn’t be more excited to join the Nittany Lion family and strengthen my communications knowledge!” — Hannah B., Master of Professional Studies in Strategic Communications

“Finally time to make it official. This past year working from home taught me it’s important to invest in yourself. Ever since leaving the Navy, I put work and the mission first and invested my time for others. I’m now ready to take this next step and fully invest in myself.” — Julio M., Bachelor of Science in Marketing
