The PSU Big Apple Podcast | Episode 1


The PSU Big Apple Podcast is our latest manifestation that we hope will embody the “We Are” mantra. Part of our goal in creating this podcast is to highlight stories from graduates of all backgrounds and experiences. In fact, our first twelve episodes will feature guests from each of Penn State’s twelve colleges. Join us each month as we dive into the lives and career paths of NYC based Penn State alumni. With guests from the Smeal College of Business to the Eberly College of Science, we’ll discuss their unique journeys, review their successes, unpack their failures, and understand their perspective on overcoming adversity.
