An internship during undergraduate studies led to a post-graduation job and opportunity to further his education. Jared Goodman arrived at William Penn University to continue playing baseball at the collegiate level on scholarship after transferring from Irvine Valley and Goldenwest College.
Hailing from the beaches in sunny Huntington Beach, California, Jared felt lost and unsure of what direction life was going to take him. He was out of his comfort zone when first arriving at William Penn, “It took me some time to adjust, but I quickly found a home away from home,” said Jared.
Having moved halfway across the country, Jared was able to grow as a person—with the help from faculty, staff, coaches, and most importantly, his lifelong friends.
Jared attributes much of his memories to the baseball team and friends he has made. Whether that was on the road for competitive play, practicing on the diamond at Penn, or even memories off the field, those memories made and friendships built will never be forgotten.
