Dr. Erica Frankel—who earned her PhD in chemistry at Penn State—never expected to find the perfect graduate program for her right here in Pennsylvania. After completing her undergraduate studies at Drexel University, Dr. Frankel planned to leave Pennsylvania to continue her education, until she visited Penn State.
"I’ve had life changing experiences at Penn State. This is a really supportive environment; you don’t realize until you’re in graduate school how much you need those supportive people on tough days. I’ve found that supportive group here."
