Just walking around Penn State, Penn State campus, and the downtown area; even though it is well developed, and there are some cute stores, for the most part, you feel trapped. Much more interesting to be a world globe trotter, photographer Vlogger, or media producer.
Good places to explore to include Vietnam (Saigon, Hanoi), Cambodia (Phnom Penh).
For example, I found college to be a very formative experience, especially being a first generation Korean-American going to college in the states. I think my UCLA undergraduate was a great experience, but ultimately, around my junior and senior year, I was itching to get out, and explore the world.
