"Alumni Central" Tent
Alumni can keep up with the big game and catch up with old friends in the "Alumni Central" tent, located in front of the Engineering building. Sponsored by the Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association, the weather-proof tent serves as the main venue for the Penn State-Illinois football game on TV and as a social meeting place for alumni and the campus community. Refreshments will be available. Friends of Penn State are welcome to join in the alumni activities. For more about alumni activities, contact Bill Woodard, the campus liaison, at 724-334-6049 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW ON-CAMPUS VENUE:
With a new on-campus venue, the fourth annual Chancellor's Gala is set for Friday, Sept. 28, in the campus Athletics Center.
Hosted by the campus Advisory Board, the event brings together founders, donors, alumni, students, faculty and staff, and features dinner and dancing, silent auction, mystery box sale and raffle items. Last year the gala, which is a part of the University-wide fundraising effort, "For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students," brought in more than $10,000, a new record for the three-year-old event. The total represented a 25 percent increase over the previous year.
The proceeds benefit the Advisory Board's endowed trustee scholarship. In addition to fundraising, the Chancellor's Gala serves as a platform for the campus to honor its special donors with the "Corporate/Foundation Partner of the Year" award and “Arch Society” inductions.
