Campus Philanthropy Fall 2014
The fall 2014 issue of Campus Philanthropy, the annual news magazine for benefactors of Penn State New Kensington, is available online.
The 12-page, four-color publication recaps the recently-concluded seven-year “For the Future” campaign. Highlights include: campus campaign raising $3.8 million, nearly 130 percent of its goal; 50th anniversary celebration; charter members of the arch Society; Alcoa as inaugural Corporate Partner of the Year; technology building named after former campus executive office Robert Arbuckle; Alle-Kiski Society doubling it $26,000 pledge; and Chancellor Kevin Snider’s five-year strategic plan.
The lull before the next Penn State campaign allows Penn State New Kensington to focus on campus-specific initiatives for the next few years. These initiatives include renovation of the Forum Theatre and a new softball field at the Alcoa Technical Center. Alumni and friends are encouraged to continue their generosity, especially during the fourth annual Penn State Day of Philanthropy that is set for Tuesday, Dec. 2. The event is intended to raise awareness of private giving’s impact on the University and its students.

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.

ATHLETICS CENTER PROJECT: SOFTBALL FIELD
The fourth phase of the Athletics Center project is an on-campus softball diamond for the Lady Lions. The new home will be constructed on a parcel of campus property located below the soccer field. Plans are underway and awaiting funding. Support from alumni and friends will allow the project to come to fruition.
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.
