Message from a Fellow Penn Stater

portrait2What do you get when you combine one of the greatest cities in the world with over 23,000 alumni from the greatest university in the world? An amazing group of loyal Penn Staters spreading Nittany Lion pride throughout the Big Apple!

The New York City Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is here for local alumni who want to meet, mingle and network with other Penn Staters, give back to Penn State through philanthropic efforts including our Scholarship Fund or THON fundraising events, contribute to the local community by participating in community service events, and maintain a connection to our alma mater.

Why should you become a member?  Dues from membership supports our special events, gives you access and discounts to members-only events, and contributes to our Michael D. Ferugio Scholarship Fund, which benefts a freshman of need who shows great Penn State Pride. And because we're a qualified exempt organization under 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, your membership fee is tax deductible.

To our current members - thank you for your support. It's because of your contributions we are able to offer great events and make the NYC chapter one of the best in the country!  A special thanks to all the volunteers who keep the orgaization running smoothly; we couldn't do it without you!

We are always looking for new members and volunteers with a fresh perspective who want to get involved and help us expand the organization. Please contact me at if you have an idea for a new event or membership benefit, want to become more active in the chapter, learn more about us, or just want to say hi.  It's always great to hear from a fellow Nittany Lion! See you at our next event!

For the Glory,
