“Being a PSU Viking means having access to a community that supports research,
innovation, and entrepreneurship. I left Stanford’s masters program in aeronautics and astronautics
to work on research aboard the International Space Station at PSU. I also help run the
PSU Entrepreneurship Club. It has nearly 200 members and more than 20 student-led start-ups.”
