WE ARE ... PENN STATE IN PITTSBURGH
- THE First Chapter created in the Alumni Association! We were founded in 1898.
- Everywhere! You will run into Penn Staters in the Pittsburgh region no matter the location.
- Committed to philanthropy (and volunteerism)! We focus most of our fundraising activities to contribute to our Chapter Endowed Scholarship, The Chappie Hill Memorial Scholarship. This is given once a year to a Penn State student (or two) from the area. Additionally, we support THON and our local DMAIG; DVE Rocks for Children’s Radiothon; Big Brothers Big Sisters; The American Cancer Society; and The Salvation Army to name a few.
- Very social! We sponsor annual chapter mixer events; we network at University sponsored functions brought to the Burgh; we hold happy hour socials; we attend pro sports games, the symphony, visit the zoo and enjoy PSU football and other sports game watch parties.
- Nostalgic! We participate in the Homecoming parade and other activities to showcase Pittsburgh.
- Supportive! We interact regularly with “our” commonwealth campus’ students and staff at Greater Allegheny (McKeesport).
