Alumni Welcome

Alumni Welcome

Our society is your connection to Penn State. Our Board of Directors is made up of individuals who have a shared passion, pride and loyalty for Penn State.

We support New Kensington campus students through our endowed scholarship fund, which has provided $53,500 to campus students since 1998.

I invite you to join us at one of our meetings or at any one of our events. In the fall we cheer on the Nittany Lions at a TV Football Party, which features a Big 10 opponent. In the spring we raise funds for our scholarship at our Bowlathon. In the summer, it’s our Alumni Golf Scramble that helps grow the endowment.

The alumni board features an eclectic group of Penn State alumni. Members include graduates from Penn State New Kensington, gradutes from University Park who attended the campus, graduates from Penn State who never attended the campus but live in the Alle-Kiski Valley, and parents of Penn State alumni.

As you can see, we welcome anyone who wants to connect, or reconnect, to our local Penn State community and support the campus and students of Penn State New Kensington.
