January 2016


Greetings Penn Staters,

I hope everyone had a fantastic New Years and excellent start to 2016. At December’s Commencement, we welcomed a new group of alumni and are excited for upcoming events for the new year.

Our first happy hour social of 2016 held at The First Post was a great success and I am excited for the next scheduled event. February’s happy hour social with the Penn State York Alumni Society and Penn State York County Chapter will be held at Primanti Brothers on Wednesday, February 10th at 6:00pm.

As we come closer to the end of January, there are several events for Penn State York’s THON Committee geared towards students and alumni coming together in hopes to increase our total fundraising efforts for the Four Diamonds Fund. A detailed listing of all events can be found on our Facebook page as well as our website. There will be a joint student-alumni reveal party during THON weekend held at the Bradley Building on Sunday, February 20th.  More details coming soon!  We hope to see you there.

Lee Rubin, motivational speaker, will also be returning to Penn State York’s campus on February 3rd. Rubin has spoken on campus before during career week activities as he has had a successful career as a speaker, author, human resources professional and as a former Nittany Lion football player. Please check out our events page for details!

I am excited for our planning efforts of new activities and events for the Penn State York Alumni Society. Our next quarterly meeting will be held Tuesday, March 8th at 6:30pm in the Bradley Building. If you are interested in sharing ideas or interests for upcoming events and efforts, I welcome you to attend this meeting and get involved. Let us band together as the proud Pride of Lions in 2016.

For The Glory,
