I know it is just an organization. I know that 'it' could replace me in a second. But I am proud to work and represent Penn State. I've found my niche helping adult students find their place in a world that previously, has been the stomping grounds only of those who recently graduated high school. Penn State certainly has its faults: it is extremely expensive, there is an issue with drinking, its not a good fit for many people. But I love Penn State. I love Penn State enigmas like JoePa, the Nittany Shine, the Blue Band. It is not only that -- I love my co-workers.
I have by sheer, dumb luck, plopped myself into the best possible work environment for myself.
