GSV PENN STATE CLUB GIVES  $2000 TO AREA FOOD BANKS.    Since we represent Penn Staters from Union, Snyder, and Northumberland counties, it is important to give back to the communities in time of need.  Donations to the food banks of each county would be the most beneficial to the residents that need it most.  Also we gave to the Lion's Pantry located at Penn State that provides for students that are experiencing food insecurity.   The great support from chapter members and alumni in the area allowed us to not only continue to provide scholarships but also donate to the local area during this time uncertainty.

 

Stay home & stay safe!

The Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association was chartered 40 years ago as an extension of the Penn State Alumni Association.  The primary mission of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter is to provide financial aid in the form of scholarships to area students attending Penn State.  Since our inception in 1978, our chapter has grown to over 1100 active members, has awarded well over to $150,000 in scholarship monies to incoming freshmen attending the Pennsylvania State University and started and grown an Endowed Scholarship fund to provide financial aid to upperclassmen already enrolled at Penn State.  Our signature fundraising event is our annual Pig Roast attended by our annual scholarship recipients, the Nittany Lion, The entire Penn State Cheerleading Squad, the Executive Director of the Penn State Alumni Association and hundreds of Penn State Alumni, supporters and fans.  Our chapter has been awarded several University sponsored Alumni Association awards.  The greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter received the 2006 Penn State Alumni Association Networking and Fellowship achievement award for an outstanding fellowship or networking program or event.  Our chapter also attained Chapter of Distinction status, awarded by the Penn State Alumni Association, on an annual basis since 2006.  In 2007 our chapter was awarded the first ever “Honorary Nittany Lion Mascot” award, presented by the Penn State Cheerleaders annually.  

The Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter is constantly striving to uphold and maintain the principles set forth by the Penn State Alumni Association.  We welcome anyone interested in becoming part of the great tradition of the Pennsylvania State University to join our Alumni Chapter.
