FOR THE FUTURE: THE CAMPAIGN FOR PENN STATE STUDENTS
Penn State alumni Patrick and Mardelle Kopnicky are leading the campus committee charged with securing $3 million in new support for Penn State New Kensington by June 2014. The campus' objectives are to provide support for student enrichment, scholarship support, student-faculty research, and capital improvements. The campaign is designed to create educational, cultural, and economic opportunities for the region, specifically the Alle-Kiski Valley community, and to build a campus of the future that enriches the experiences of students beyond the classroom.

LION SHRINE ENGRAVED BRICKS: CREATE A LEGACY
The Class of 2003 at Penn State New Kensington began the tradition of funding a senior class gift through the purchase of bricks leading to the Nittany Lion Shrine, located in front of the Administration Building. Every year since, graduating classes, along with families and friends, have continued to support this tradition and contribute to the campaign. All proceeds support students struggling to afford a college education. You can continue the tradition by purchasing a personalized brick: 4 x 8’ for $75 or 8 x 8” for $150. You are helping future students pursue a Penn State New Kensington educational experience while commemorating you or a loved one’s legacy at Penn State.
OPENING THE DOOR TO GREAT CAREERS
Preparing students for successful careers is an important component of a Penn State education. Learning opportunities take place both inside and outside of the classroom. Career Services is a vital resource that provides comprehensive career planning, education, and job search support services for students and alumni. Support is needed to ensure that our students are prepared to enter the job market as soon as possible after graduation.
