Ivy Leaf - Winter 2008
Bleeding Blue and White
In September 2006, several undergraduates joined together to form a Penn State Altoona chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association’s Blue & White Society. The Society represents student participation in the University’s alumni membership group and focuses on building excitement about everything that is Penn State.
Just over a year later, Penn State Altoona boasts the largest Blue & White Society membership of any Penn State location outside of University Park. Fueled in part by an appeal to life members of the Alumni Association to sponsor student participation in the Society, the Penn State Altoona chapter currently enjoys a membership of more than 200 students. Such support proves that Penn State Altoona alumni care about student involvement and exemplify that contagious Penn State spirit.
The Blue & White Society at Penn State Altoona is visible on campus—hosting coffeehouse events and student competitions during athletic events—and in the community—joining with the Alumni Society to serve Creamery ice cream to residents of local nursing homes.
