The discussion will be led by Dr. Ming Xiao at Penn State and Dr. Raed Lubbad at Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Schreyer Scholar Edka Wong

After hearing about Schreyer from a friend, I was motivated to achieve the GPA to be accepted into the Honors College as a current Penn State student. Schreyer has provided me with leadership opportunities through the Schreyer Honors College Student Council, given me the ability to work closely with faculty, and held me accountable for my education.
