Take Charge and Get Active with Penn State Brandywine’s Blue & White Society Club
By: Sharifa Small, Blue & White Society President, updated by the Lion’s Eye Web Staff
Brandywine students! Can’t think of a club to join that would be beneficial and look great on your resume? Well, look no further than the newly formed Brandywine chapter of the Blue & White Society Club.
This club is the student arm of the Penn State Alumni Association, the largest dues-paying alumni association.
For over 140 years, the Penn State Alumni Association has been a guardian of Penn State’s tradition; by deciding to be a member of the Blue and White Society Club, you are a part of that tradition—early.
According to the Blue & White constitution, the purpose of the club is:
“To support the Penn State Alumni Association’s mission to connect alumni to the University and to each other, provide valued service to members, and to support the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service. They also strive to support The Pennsylvania State University—future, current, and past students and friends of the University.”
“There are more than 140 dues-paying members of the Blue & White Society at Brandywine,” assistant director of development and club adviser Virginia Harrison said. “My goal as the adviser is to make sure these students have engaging programming to support their Penn State pride. I hope they get involved with the Blue & White Society on campus while they are students and learn what it means to give back when they are alumni.”
The benefits of joining the Blue and White Society include connecting with over 513,000 alumni around the world through the Alumni Association’s online directory, earning a 10% discount for any Penn State Bookstore items and receiving a limited edition Blue and White Society T-shirt. Members also participate in the club’s social, service and networking events.
