Get Involved with the Alumni Society

There are many ways to get involved with the Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society.  You can join us at our family-friendly events, such as the Alumni Bowlathon.  You can catch up with former classmates at our Alumni Breakfast events, or connect with other local alumni at our annual golf outing.

If you're looking for ways to give back, we're always looking for alumni and friends to volunteer their time and talents to our campus programs. Would you like to volunteer for an event? Do you have an idea for an event? Need to contact a board member? Would you like to serve on a campus committee? Call us at 724-334-6057.

Give to Penn State New Kensington

You can enhance Penn State New Kensington excellence by giving in a variety of ways, such as endowments, scholarships, planned giving, and faculty support. Gifts fall under two categories; outright or deferred gifts. Both are of equal importance to us. In any form, your gift to Penn State New Kensington will sustain a tradition of excellence for current and future generations of students, and will provide support for academic programs, teaching and learning at the campus.
