>> Honestly, it feels a little weird. It feels like graduation all over again. I'm excited
because I feel like I kind of accomplished something, you know, even though I'm just
starting. But I'm excited.
>> And I am truly delighted to welcome our entry medical class and your family members
and friends who are here today, to Hershey and to the Penn State family.
>> I chose Penn State Hershey because I felt like the institution had the same values as
I'm used to. I'm from a small town so this is definitely my kind of hometown setting.
And I really do value the fact that their faculty is so involved with the students.
