The chapter’s goal is to reach out into the community through various efforts that not only raise funds for our scholarships at Penn State Beaver, but also serve to connect Penn State friends and alumni.
Among the chapter’s premier events are the Holiday Gift Drive for Beaver County Children and Youth Services, the summer Penn State Creamery ice cream sales, and the spring Wine Tasting. There are many ways that you can help the chapter, and the group welcomes your input and ideas.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. in room 15 of the Beaver Student Union Building. Remember, you do not have to be a Penn State alumni to join the Beaver Valley Area Alumni Chapter. Dues are just $10 per individual or $15 per family.
For information about membership or if you have any other questions, please contact campus liaison April Johnston, director of public relations at Penn State Beaver, or call 724-773-3815.
