2,500 miles away from Happy Valley, we’re connecting Penn State Alumni, Students and future Lions in America’s Finest City.

Welcome to the San Diego chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association!

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​.


On behalf of the Penn State Alumni Association, we’d like to invite you to join the San Diego PSAA chapter, your connection back to all things Happy Valley. Support your SDPSU Chapter by becoming a Penn State Alumni Association member today.


Join us for a variety of events including: TV Tailgates watching PSU football and other sporting events, fundraisers, B1G social events, service projects, and other gatherings.


The Penn State Alumni San Diego Chapter consistently raises the bar for scholarships given to local students to attend Penn State. View information about our scholarship offerings and fund.
