The Collegian Alumni Interest Group (AIG) annual meeting on Sept. 12 is open to all Collegian alums.
It will be held in the Willard Building, the new home of The Daily Collegian and the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications. It will begin with a tour of the new media center and Collegian offices at 11 a.m. followed by a formal meeting in Room 103 beginning at noon.
Because of the university’s COVID protocols, no refreshments will be permitted and all attendees must wear masks.
The board will discuss whether to purchase a database of Collegian Alums from the Penn State Alumni Association and whether to sponsor an event in 2022 to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the launching of The Collegian’s predecessor at PSU. The AIG may co-sponsor the event with the Bellisario College of Communications, which will turn 108 in 2022.
In addition, AIG board member Kevin Naff and Collegian staff will unveil plans for 1855 Creative, a creative services arm of the Collegian business department that is scheduled to be launched this fall.
Because of COVID, the meeting will be simultaneously conducted over Zoom. Collegian alums who would like the link should send a request to CollegianAIG@gmail.com.
