First Nittany Networking Event a Success!

On Thursday, June 17, 2008, 85 Penn State alums from the greater Philadelphia area met at the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center for an evening of networking, refreshments and fun with fellow alumni.

This event featured Penn State alumni who shared their experiences on the power of the Penn State network. Cheryl Bonner, director of Alumni Career Services, discussed tips on using the Penn State connection for career and business success. This special evening also featured networking opportunities, door prizes, and the biggest hit of the evening - Creamery ice cream.

“This was a great event, I’m so glad I decided to come at the last minute,” said Lisa Altomare, ’80 Lib. “I really enjoyed meeting other Penn Staters and learning about more Penn State Great Valley. I hope Penn State hosts more of these in the future!”

The program was sponsored by Penn State Alumni Career Services, Penn State Great Valley Development and Alumni Relations, and Penn State Great Valley Alumni Society.
