More About Us

Our club's goal is to provide valuable, lifelong social, intellectual, professional and cultural gateways for Penn alumni in our Western PA region:

There are Great Opportunities to:

  • socialize and network with fellow alumni
  • assist Penn students with internships or introductions
  • interview prospective Penn students through the Penn Alumni Interview Program
  • join in professional and cultural events
  • contribute to the community and worthwhile causes
  • access the latest Penn research and keep up with our alma mater
  • access other Ivy League institutions and select events with their alumni clubs

The Penn Alumni Club holds many events throughout the year like our Ben's Birthday Bash, a Pirates Tailgate and Food Drive, Happy Hours downtown and in the suburbs, walking tours, faculty and guest lectures, and visits by Penn student performing arts groups like Mask & Wig.

How to join a Penn club listserv

University of Pennsylvania alumni are now eligible to begin signing up for their club listservs. This is your opportunity to begin automatically receiving messages from the club leadership in your area about upcoming alumni events.

How can you be sure that you will not get unwanted messages? That your messages go to club members and no one else?
Because our club lists are moderated by Alumni Relations, we will not allow anyone but members of your club to subscribe to the list, and we will not permit inappropriate messages to be sent to the list.

To sign up for our club listserv, send an email message to listserv@lists.upenn.edu with a blank subject line and the text:

subscribe PENNWESTPA< your name>

as the body of the message. Remember to:

substitute your own name where it says


omit the brackets

For example, if your name is Homer Simpson, your email to listserv@lists.upenn.edu should have no subject line, and should look like this:


(Please note that PENNWESTPA does not have spaces in it.)

We hope to see you at an event soon and also invite you to get involved with our exciting Penn Club!

Yours in Penn,

Donald M. Bonk

President, Penn Alumni Club of Western PA

Co-Chair, Penn Alumni Interview Program, Pittsburgh
