Lydia Periconi

  • Sophomore
  • Major: Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences (Pre-Vet)

Hello! My name is Lydia Periconi, and I am a second-year student in the College of Ag Sciences at University Park. I chose Penn State and the College of Agricultural Sciences because of the community's incredible reputation, research opportunities, and supportive environment. The Pre-Vet program is amazing, and I feel very supported in my journey to becoming a veterinarian.

One of my favorite activities at Penn State is going to the football games! The school spirit is like nowhere else. I am working towards my dream of becoming an exotic animal veterinarian. I cannot wait to study abroad, get exposed to all different types of animal medicine, and work with species from all over the world. As part of the Schreyer Honors College, one of my biggest goals is to get involved with research projects related to my major. I am looking forward to joining the Equine Research Team and getting as many hands-on experiences as possible, which won’t be hard at a school like Penn State.

My favorite creamery ice cream flavor: chocolate chip cookie dough
