Alumni Spotlight - Patrick Fabian

Why did I choose PSU?
I'm from New Cumberland, PA(outside of Harrisburg) and fell in love with the campus first time I saw it. So excited to get Main Campus admission. And the teachers I interviewed with were inspirational and challenging right out of the gate.

Unforgettable Memory
Walking up Old Main at night with no one around while the snow fell on me. (With a College Diner "sticky bun" in my belly!)

What am I up to now?
I've been fortunate to be a working actor these past 25 years, performing with everyone from Angela Lansbury to Xena. On film, I was lead in "The Last Exorcism" which made $70 million worldwide, recent Guest Star on TV's "Criminal Minds" & "Castle", this season recurred as a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy" and this February on AMC I can be seen as a Series Regular on the "Breaking Bad" prequel "Better Call Saul".

How did PSU help prepare me?
Never a day goes by without PSU's invaluable training helping me. No way I'd have the career I've gotten without the Penn State teachers who took the time to lay a foundation of work habits that had served me well. Dedication, perseverance, & a sense of joy in what I get to do all stems from them.
