Upcoming Events

Ride Across America!

SDPSU is excited to host the launch of a very ambitious nationwide THON fundraiser this spring! Fundraiser participants will be using their feet to power them through their challenge, but they won’t be dancing… they’ll be pedaling.
Project Pedal is a unique initiative being undertaken by two Pennsylvanians with a heart “For The Kids!” Jeffrey Weidow and Jack Jones are cycling across the United States to raise money and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer. Their goal is to cycle from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL (a distance of 3,000+ miles) in 30 days or less.
The San Diego chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association will be celebrating this exciting venture by hosting a cycling sendoff on the first day of their journey. We’ll be gathering at the South Carlsbad State Beach Campground at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, April 1 to cheer on these brave THON warriors as they prepare to start their long trek.
This is an awesome opportunity for local alumni to extend a warm welcome and heartfelt support to two Pennsylvanians who have never attempted a cross-country bike trip but are giving it their all for the kids. Please join us for photo ops, words of encouragement, and enthusiastic cheers and applause as they set out from Carlsbad!
Do you enjoy bike riding? Then bring your bike and ride along with Jeff and Jack for as long as your schedule allows! Some of us will be riding for a few miles before heading to work; other alumni will be accompanying them for their entire day 1 trek all the way to Jacumba, CA! You’re welcome to pedal along with us for any distance. 

Career Networking!

Join fellow San Diego Penn Staters for happy hour at Pretzels and Pints in North Park! We’ll network, hear from a certified CPA on 5 investing tips for all levels.

We will also have a silent auction including Penn state memorabilia, gift cards to local SD businesses, and more!!
