*** Football TV Tailgates ***

Attention all Penn State Football Fans!

    Join us this fall at our new location, Poor Richard's Commonhouse, each and every Saturday for our TV Tailgates watching Penn State Football. Come out every week for great fun, football and camaraderie with fellow Penn Staters! Poor Richard's is the THE Penn State Bar / Restaurant for the Twin Cities. We look forward to seeing you at Poor Richard's every Saturday this fall!

*** LIONS A.K.A. BINGO! ***

    If you came out to any of our TV Tailgates over the past five seasons, you would know that we play the award winning game of LIONS during the football games. Similar in concept to BINGO (and stolen from the Minnesota Twin's version of TWINGO) - watch for certain plays and events to take place on the field and mark them off on your card. Score 5 in a row and win LIONS! Each sheet contains two game cards and are just $1 per sheet with proceeds going to the PSUMN Past President's Scholarship. There will be weekly prizes and also a grand prize at the end of the season.

*** 2016-2017 Scholarship Awarded ***

    We are thrilled to announce that the 2016 Past Presidents’ Endowed Scholarship Award recipient is Emma Matthys. Emma is a junior advertising major at University Park. She is very grateful for the award but could not attend our BBQ Picnic / Student Send-off because she's in New York City doing an internship. This year's scholarship is being awarded in honor of Jim Gibson, a past president of the chapter.

*** Shopping? ***

    Are you a regular shopper? By a very small action, you can help contribute to our scholarship fund by just doing your ordinary shopping at Amazon through a special link! Visit our webpage first and click on the Amazon link - it'll associate all of your shopping back to our organization and we'll get a small % of the sales returned to our Chapter. The best part is, the prices you find on Amazon are exactly the same - there is no markup, so you have no reason to not help us out this year when shopping on Amazon.

*** Student Book Store ***

Student Book Store    The Student Book Store, located in downtown State College, has been a long time supporter of the Penn State Minnesota Alumni Chapter by donating to our Silent Auction each year and supporting our Freshmen Send-Off. Next time you're shopping for your favorite PSU gear, please keep SBS in mind as your first place to shop!
