Hello, my name is Philip Sweny and I am a freshman. I am currently in the Division of Undergraduate studies and don’t really have a clear understanding with what I want to do. Right now I would say that I am definitely leaning towards majoring in criminology or something similar to that, but I would not be to surprised if that changed. I live in a small town in north east Pennsylvania called Erie. if it sounds familiar its because I live about ten minutes from one of the great lakes, lake Erie. I am very passionate about basketball and football, especially Penn State football (4 more days!) and spend a lot of my time at the IM building playing a little ball.
When I sat down with my adviser to schedule my classes, I was in pain wondering what science class I was going to end up. Two classes I were heavily avoiding were chemistry and physics. I actually did decent in chemistry, but that was only because I put in a lot of work in that class. I also had a very good teacher in that class which is very uncommon with high school science teachers. Anyways, when my adviser and I were scrolling through all of the options I saw this course. To be quite honest, the description of this class really caught my eye and that is really the only reason I am taking this class (other than avoiding a chem class). I am not planning on being a science major simply because I was never very good at science and was never interested or intrigued by it.
