Class Standing: Junior

Hello, I am Seth Nishiyama. I am a fourth generation half Japanese-American from Southwestern Washington. I am majoring in Risk Management – Actuarial Science, hoping to get minors in Statistics and Japanese. The Pacific Northwest has influenced a lot of my hobbies. I love to go golfing, backpacking and snowboarding.

I am involved on campus in a few ways. I am very involved with the university’s tutoring service, Penn State Learning. I am both a math tutor and a study skills tutor. Next year, I will be one of the peer math coordinators in 220 Boucke. This past year, I was also the treasurer of Mortar Board National Senior Honor Society. I’m extremely excited, because this summer I will be studying abroad in Japan.

As a mentor, I hope to make you aware of the various opportunities on campus and help you make a smooth transition into your college career!
