More About Penina

What do you like best about your major/academic program?


“I appreciate the fact that I am able to have small personal classroom settings where dialogue is encouraged. It is wonderful to have teachers available who are invested and want to see their students succeed.”

What activities are you involved in outside of class?


“I lead the TRiO scholars program, tutor, do study skills, am an orientation leader, vice president of Phi Kappa Phi honor society, part of CJ honor society, participate minimally with common ground, and a tour guide.”

If you could choose one favorite thing about going to school here, what would it be?


“Location—you can’t beat getting a discount at fabulous mountains and having the ability to ride them daily during the winter.
The fact that it’s a personal campus is a plus as well.”
