Blue/White Tailgate and Senior Send-off Registration is OPEN!

The Arts and Architecture Alumni society invites all A&A alumni and friends, along with our students graduating in May, to join us for our second Blue/White Tailgate and Senior Sendoff. From 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 16, we'll be at the corner of Shortlidge and Curtin Roads, on the east lawn of Borland Building. A full buffet and beverages will be available, along with musical performances and giveaways, and networking opportunities galore. A silent auction benefiting the Alumni Society Scholarship will feature an array of items at varying price points.

Attendees will be issued wristbands upon producing valid ID. Student attendees are limited to graduating students enrolled in the College of Arts and Architecture. Anyone under 21 will only be admitted if in the company of a parent or guardian.

Tailgate food menu includes spinach salad with strawberries, toasted almonds and lemon vinaigrette; fruit salad with berries and fresh mint; redskin potato salad; macaroni and cheese; baked beans; BBQ pulled pork; smoked chicken quarters with bourbon maple glaze; and a selection of cookies and brownies. Beverage service will include coffee, tea, water, beer, wine, Bloody Marys and Mimosas.

The support of alumni and friends, including college faculty and staff, will help sustain this Alumni Society initiative as a free annual event for our graduating seniors as a welcome to the family of Penn State Alumni. Please consider a suggested donation of $10 per adult. Register online first, and then contribute by visiting
