Alumni Association student groups claim national awards

September 07, 2004

University Park, Pa. -- The Blue & White Society -- the Penn State Alumni Association's student membership organization -- has been named one of the three best student organizations in the country by the Association of Student Advancement Programs (ASAP). The Lion Ambassadors, Penn State's student alumni corps, and Casey Keiber, adviser to both groups, also were recognized with national awards.

The Blue & White Society was named an "Outstanding Organization" at the ASAP national convention in Portland, Ore., earlier this month. The organization was one of three groups to receive the national award. This is just the latest in a series of awards claimed by the society. In May, Undergraduate Student Government (USG) named the society Penn State's "Most Active Large Student Organization" for the second year in a row.

The Lion Ambassadors, Penn State's student alumni corps, also took home a national award. The organization, which is sponsored by the Alumni Association, received an "Outstanding Newsletter" award for its alumni publication, Lion Pause.

Casey Keiber, assistant director of student involvement for the Alumni Association and adviser to both student organizations, was one of three recipients of the "Outstanding Adviser" award. Keiber was previously named Penn State's "Adviser of the Year" for 2003-04 by USG.

The trio of awards is just the latest evidence of the Penn State Alumni Association's continued effort to enhance the campus experience for all Penn State students. For more information about the Alumni Association's programs and services for students and families, or to join, visit
