Hi! My name is Kerri Mundy, and I am a freshman this year at Penn State! Luckily for me, I had the wonderful opportunity to be able to be a part of the Summer LEAP program, so I already have 6 credits finished at Penn State! Currently I am in the College of Communications and I would love to study Advertising.  My favorite things to do include Field Hockey and Lacrosse, but I also love the beach.  While I'm not as much as a science person as I would like to be, I realize that science is everywhere, especially in my favorite activities.  In high school, I struggled with a lot of the science classes my school provided, so I was pretty worried when I was choosing classes for this semester.  Science 200 seemed like the perfect class for me! The only type of science that has really "clicked" with me is Marine Biology, where I've been given really cool opportunities to further my education within that subject.  Last April some of my classmates and I went to the Marine Science Consortium in Wallops Island, VA, and learned all about marine life and spent four days in the lab, on boats, and even in the swamps.  It was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone! Even though I really like Marine Biology, I found that my true passion is in writing, business, and communicating, so I decided to go with Communications!

Here is a picture of my classmates and I before and after our trip to the swamps!

Hi Kerri! I am also a freshman who did summer session. Although, I did not do the LEAP program. I lived in Pollock for summer. Now, I am in East which seems like it is so far away from everything. I also am in the College of Communications and majoring in Advertising. It seems like we have a lot in common.
