Scholar Alumni Society Board (SASB)

The Scholar Alumni Society Board is the governing body of the Scholar Alumni Society, an affiliate group of the Penn State Alumni Association. Board members lead efforts to achieve the mission of uniting and connecting alumni of the Schreyer Honors College by engaging and supporting alumni and current Scholars by giving of their time, talent, and treasure, working directly with College staff.

They sponsor the Scholar Alumni & Friends Tailgate, Homecoming Pre-Parade Tailgate, Mentoring With Honors, and Connect and serve as a strategic partner in the Alumni Admissions Interview Program for which they were recognized with the 2019 PSAA Volunteer Group Award for Young Alumni Involvement. Board members endowed the SASB Future Leaders Scholarship for upper-division Scholars demonstrating leadership in the College.

The Board meets quarterly — during the spring and fall at University Park, and winter and summer via conference call. Committees focused on Alumni & Student Engagement and Career Development & Mentorship hold monthly conference calls. Eighteen at-large members serve three-year terms and are joined by a faculty representative and a student representative. The President of the SASB sits on Alumni Council. Applications for membership are announced each fall.

Schreyer Scholar Hannah Lombardo

I know that in Schreyer, I have a community that embodies everything there is to love about Penn State.  Whether it's sharing our passionate blue and white spirit at the football games or collaborating on team projects for honors classes, the family I have made in Schreyer has certainly shaped my Penn State experience.
