SCYP Featured in WPSU's "Reasons to Stay"

SCYP Featured in WPSU's "Reasons to Stay"
The segment, available on WPSU's website, addresses issues like housing, employment, and shifting social groups as those interviewed explain their decisions to remain in Happy Valley or seek out something else.

The role of SCYP in the lives of young professionals here is evident in the profiles of Melissa Hombosky and Emily Reddy. Their stories reflect an all-too common State College experience -- getting involved in fun activities, meeting lifelong friends, and putting down roots, only to have it all turned upside down by the transient nature of this town. It's bittersweet, but the bottom line is that though things may change, there are wonderful people to meet, great things to do, and an entire community to engage with.

SCYP strives to be a conduit to connect young professionals with each other and with the community, however long they are here. We hope to be counted among the "reasons to stay."
