*** 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. The 2016-17 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!
