2024 Penn State Football Bus Trips

The Penn State Alumni Association – Lancaster Chapter typically hosts one or two bus trips to Beaver Stadium each year.  The board is reviewing our game options and a decision will be made in the very near future.  Pricing information will be available at that time.

2024 Scholarship Raffle Tickets

The Penn State Alumni Association Lancaster Chapter raises funds for its scholarship program through donations and various activities conducted throughout the year. One major revenue source for our Scholarship Fund is our raffle ticket sale.
The 2024 Raffle Fundraiser is currently in the planning stages

About Membership

In July 2022, your Penn State Alumni Association (PSAA) membership expanded to include access to the Penn State Alumni Association Lancaster Chapter (Lancaster Chapter). In addition to receiving information regarding Penn State events from the PSAA, you will also receive information regarding local events coordinated by the Lancaster Chapter.

This change eliminates separate dues for local chapter membership, making it easier for Penn Staters to stay connected.

The Lancaster Chapter proudly represents Penn State through local scholarships, social events, community service projects, networking events, trips, and activities. To learn more about PSAA and their membership opportunities, click here.
