Class of 2020: Where are they now?

Dylan Fredricey and Camaryn Lokuta, who earned their degrees in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, talk about where they are employed and how Penn State Wilkes-Barre led them there.

Animal education

Gabriela Gronkowski wants to study veterinary science in the Caribbean and chose to start at Penn State Wilkes-Barre to help her get there. An animal lover ever since she can remember, she began taking care of others’ pets and realized she wanted to spend her career caring for animals. Gronkowski is majoring in animal sciences and chose Penn State’s 2+2 Plan to give her a smoother college transition.

Flourishing in her first year

First-generation college student Hailey Carey thought Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s smaller size would be ideal for making the move to college—and she couldn’t be happier with her decision to attend.

“I didn’t know what to expect from college. I wanted to be more comfortable and have an easier transition. That’s why I chose a campus close to me,” said Carey, a first-year student.
