Dear Students, Faculty, and Fellow Penn State Berks Alumni,

It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the elected President of the Penn State Berks Campus Alumni Society. I attended my entire Penn State years of education at Berks Campus and graduated in 1996 with an Associate of Science in Business Administration.

The Penn State Berks Campus Alumni Society is a service organization whose goals are to unite alumni of the Penn State Berks campus, provide a means whereby alumni may join together to enhance the interests and reputation of the Berks campus, and achieve a closer fellowship between the alumni, students, faculty, staff and community. Our mission is to encourage support to scholarships, promote professional development of students and alumni, and foster a sense of pride and commitment to the Berks campus.

The Berks Campus Alumni Society has an Endowed Students Scholarship that was created to assist Berks campus students annually with their tuition. The society contributes to the scholarship by sponsorship of several events throughout the year. These events include our annual Penn State Ice Cream Sale, our PSU Berks Fall Classic Tennis Tournament, and bus trips such as a Ghost Stories Tour with Charlie Adams and University Park/State College tours. The society also sponsors other events for the students including: the Welcome Back Picnic and Homecoming activities on campus just to name a few. Our Alumni are welcomed to participate in all society events and network with us, with students, family, and friends in making a difference in the Penn State Berks family community.

The Penn State Berks Alumni Society is always seeking volunteers that want to help make a difference and assist us with the growth of the Berks Campus. Please consider volunteering and making a difference. My favorite quote is by Winston Churchill and these words I always keep in mind as I volunteer: “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.” Please consider getting involved by contacting Heather Angstadt (Alumni Relations Assistant Director) at 610-396-6052.

Your generosity in volunteering is making our Penn State Alumni family stronger and better for us all. Thanks for caring!

We Are… Penn State Berks
