Keene State College



Nicole Mihalko

“Keene State College programs and faculty are providing me with the best preparation for my future career in Physics, which is highly competitive. I recently worked as an intern with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center – an opportunity which would not have been open to me without my education from the Keene State College Physics department. My experience at Keene State is everything that I hoped for, and will help me be successful in the future.”

– Nicole Mihalko, Physics
