Join your official community for local Penn State alumni and friends!
Thank you for belonging to our local chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association (PSAA). We want to let you know about coming changes that will affect membership in our chapter.
Starting July 1st, PSAA membership at the local and University level will be combined. Local chapters will no longer collect dues—instead, access to local chapters will be included with PSAA membership. This makes it easier for more alumni to connect with the Penn State community when and where they want and will enable chapters like ours to engage more local alumni.
Whether you're a recent Penn State graduate, a working professional in the Centre Region, or a retiree who has returned to Happy Valley, the Centre County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association (CCCPSAA) is a great way to network with a diverse group of individuals who all have one thing in common: a passion for everything Blue and White!
Open To Everyone
We encourage membership in the main Penn State Alumni Association. We welcome everyone to the Centre County Chapter, regardless of where you earned your degree -- University employees and local residents are welcome to sign-up and participate in our chapter activities. All Chapter members that aren't members of the PSAA will receive a 6 month membership in PSAA through December 30, 2022. After that even if you haven't joined PSAA you may participate in all chapter activities but will have to pay a non-member fee after December 31, 2022 for events.
