Hello! My name is John Allegro and I am the Resident Assistant for Discover House 2014-15!
I am enthralled to have the opportunity to get to work and learn with you all this year, and I want to let you know now that you have made one of the best decisions of your college career, before you have even started, by choosing to be a part of this community! Congratulations and welcome to your Discover House.
A little about me…I am a junior, majoring in Education and Public Policy (if you’d like to know what that means, I’ll be glad to explain). I grew up just north of Pittsburgh in New Castle, PA. I love theatre, music, reading, and coffee.
I lived in D-House my freshman year, so it is so nice to be returning to where I began my time here at Penn State. I am a living, breathing product of D-House and the great work the program does. Your first year here at Penn State will be full of many amazing, new, and exciting experiences and people to meet, so I urge you all to seize the opportunities as they come and do not be afraid of what awaits you during this first year at this great University. This will be my second year as an RA in Pollock, and my third year living in this residence hall community, so if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to stop by Room 501! Also, if you’d just like to chat, you’re stressed, having a bad day, or having a simply wonderful day, stop by too! Again, welcome to your new home and remember that We are, always have been, and always will be…Penn State.
For the glory, John
