laurae@herald-mail.com Katie Sior spent her first four nights at Penn State Mont Alto crying her eyes out because she was homesick. Things got so bad she called her mother at midnight to tell her she was quitting and moving back to Landisburg, Pa., the small town she grew up in about 50 minutes away in Perry County. But she soon discovered, as most freshmen do, that homesickness is only a temporary condition. "I just started getting involved in everything. By the second week I was fine," said Sior, a sophomore majoring in elementary education.
