Major: Public Relations
Class Standing: Sophomore
Hi! My name is Amanda McIlvain and I’m from Ellicott City, Maryland. I am a sophomore planning to major in Public Relations with minors in Korean and Sociology. College is a big transition, especially as an out-of-state student, so I understand that it could be difficult at times. I would love to help you transition here as well as I did.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, shopping, using social media, and eating. You’ll find me always eating… or drinking Starbucks. Last year I made it a priority to get involved here at Penn State. I received the opportunity to take part in THON on a committee and on an organization called Atlas. I am also a member of the College of Communication’s Student Council, a marketing captain for Peer Mentors, and a University Relations Homecoming captain for this year. If you have any questions about these activities, please ask! I’d love to help make your experience here at Penn State better with information on how to get involved!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I promise I’m approachable and not that awkward! I am looking forward to this year as an AASIA mentor. Hope to see you around!
