Welcome to THE Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society! Our  society is an alumni campus organization within the larger Alumni Association of Penn State. Our mission is to serve the New Kensington campus students and the local community. Our society is your local connection to Penn State!

The Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society engages in various campus and alumni projects throughout the year. In addition to fundraising, board members interact with former and current students by sponsoring social events and other networking activities both on and off campus. In 1992, the Society created an endowed scholarship; the fund was fully endowed in 1998 and is currently valued at more than $134,000. The two main fundraisers to support our endowed scholarship are the annual BowlAThon in March and our Golf Outing held in August. We hope you can join us at both of these main events!

We would love to have you be a part of our dynamic organization. We hold our meetings the third Monday of each month on campus; check out the calendar for meeting dates and locations. If you are interested in being a part of our organization please contact me at You can also contact Kary Milan, our director of development and alumni relations at the New Kensington campus at


Today, the Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society represents more than 7,000 local alumni! I know you will help this number grow!

Thank you for your support,

John Spadaro ’82
