A message from PSYAS President, Bill Englar


Warm, February Thoughts

Fellow Alumni,

Good news, it's February and we are halfway through winter.  I am anxious to get away from this arctic vortex, as they now call it. We used to just say we were having a cold spell, or cold snap.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, we are having an exciting robotics competition, here at Penn State York. There will be 54 teams of middle and high school students competing in the first tech challenge.  Check out this story on

Penn State York is currently at 77% of its THON goal.   Three students will represent Penn State York during THON Weekend Feb. 15-17 and dance for 46 hours:  Kelsey Haines, Justin Neal, and Yaribeth Ocasio.   Checks in support of THON should be made payable to: Penn State Dance Marathon or THON, and sent to Penn State York, 1031 Edgecomb Ave., York, PA 17403. Please be sure to note York, Org. 170 in the memo line of the check.  Checks need to reach the campus by Feb. 13 so they can be taken on to the University.

This month we are heading to The First Post (3691 E. Market Street, York Pa 17402), on Wednesday, February 13th. Push away the winter blahs, and join us. I hope to see you there.

For the Glory,

Bill Englar
