For the 2018-2019 school year, our Chapter launched a new pilot program called LionNotes to promote engagement between the chapter and current students. Each August we host a “Student Send Off” party to meet and engage with the local students attending Penn State in the fall. LionNotes will continue where the Student Send Off leaves off. The intention of the LionNotes program is to send continual support to Orange County students who have chosen to attend Penn State and are far away from home. The model for this program is a one-on-one “adopt a student” model. The alumni “sponsors” are matched with a student based on a commonality such as sports, Greek life or major.
