Hello Everyone! My name is Mark Paulson. I'm a sophomore here at Penn State but I hail from northern Virginia. Currently I am undecided in major, but am trying to do something in business. The reason I'm deciding not to choose a science major is because I have always dreamed of one day running my own business, something that obviously works best with a business background/major.  I chose this class because I read that it was specifically designed for non-science majors and I have never been very good with science. I realized after barely squeaking by in chemistry and almost failing out of AP Physics in high school, that science is not for me. I always knew that I would one day go to Penn State as my mother, father, aunt, uncle, grandfather and grandmother are all alumni, and my other grandfather was a dean for 15 years! I grew up watching the nittany lions play football on TV, and had no idea what the student section was really like, but going to the games has become my favorite part of attending this school. I am also a musician and love music. Here's an awesome song I found earlier today. Enjoy!

Hey Mark, good to see there's some other business-oriented people in the class! I've got alumnus in my family, too, and grew up around the university. If you're interested in someday running your own business, you might find this interesting. Best wishes!

That was a really cool song, try checking out this one. I used to be a classical musician but since coming to college I've focused more on composition then playing. Can't say that I have the alumni connection since both my parents went to the University of Maryland and my grandad worked there... suffice to say I was almost ostracized for coming here.

I completely agree with you on not expecting how the student section really is. I was blown away the first game that I went to and continue to be amazed every game that I go to. Watching videos like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSY4nAUF2N0 continue to get me more and more excited for the first game this saturday.
