Meeting some of Penn State’s surprising people

Video posted November 4, 2013 in News by Chris Aland, Arielle Brown, Alysia Libby and Renae Gornick


Sometimes there's more to people than first meets the eye. Here are the stories of McKenna Doliber, a freshman who came to Penn State to experience a different life; Natasha Field, a librarian at the Physical and Mathematical Sciences Library in Davey Building with a hobby that takes a different approach to physics; senior Kaitlin Munnelly, who harnessed exercise to solve a problem; and Sam August, a baseball player who definitely isn't your average jock.

Senior / Broadcast Journalism

I am currently a Senior at The Pennsylvania State University with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in both Sociology, and Business & The Liberal Arts. Being a part of the entertainment industry is something that I hope to achieve whether it involves being on-air, behind-the-scenes, production, etc. I am an enthusiastic person that loves to live life to the fullest and I take as many opportunities as I am given. Living a life of no regrets will propel me forward and help me achieve my goals. My hard work, determination, and relentless effort to achieve greatness is something that I value in myself. When I set my mind on something that I love, I follow through with every step, never back down from a challenge, and stay positive along the way.
