PSAA San Diego Chapter

WE ARE a network of local Penn State alumni and friends who work together to support our careers and endeavors, to be of service to our community and to celebrate and give back to the university we love. We gather to socialize and watch Nittany Lion sports, engage in community service, provide scholarships to prospective local students matriculating at Penn State and welcome recent Penn State graduates and alums who are new to our area. Though we are over 2,500 miles away from Happy Valley, San Diego is actually home to one of the largest Penn State alumni contingents in the country. Join us, and help us show Southern California what Penn State pride is all about. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.
