UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State Go mobile app, the University’s all-in-one app, now includes the full alumni experience. The app offers a central hub where Penn Staters across the globe can stay up to date on all Alumni Association news, events, The Penn Stater magazine, member benefits and more.

Penn State alumni can download the free app in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Once they log into the app, alumni can view resources and follow special events. Alumni will find quick links to key resources as well as links to the Penn State Alumni Association website and social media accounts. Users also can opt-in to receive push messages to stay up to date with important information.

The Penn State Go alumni experience is being released just in time for Homecoming 2021, so alumni can receive push and banner notifications on their mobile device to help plan out their weekend. They can easily access the main events schedule and take a detailed look at the week’s upcoming signature events. Alumni who aren’t on campus can use Penn State Go to stay connected with a livestream of Friday evening’s parade. Special Penn State-themed iMessage stickers also are available in the app for alumni to show off their Penn State pride.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Penn State Go to develop a mobile app experience that aims to meet the needs of alumni,” said Paul Clifford, CEO of the Penn State Alumni Association. “The app complements our existing communications and makes it easier than ever to stay connected with the University. It’s a great way for alumni to keep in touch with their association and the University community.”  

The Penn State Go app’s alumni experience also makes it easier to contact specific alumni interest groups or local chapters, and provides quick access to all benefits enjoyed by Alumni Association members.

Alumni can download the Penn State Go app to their iPhone or Android here, and select "Alumni Experience" the first time they launch the app. Alumni who already have the app can simply click "Change App Experience" and select "Alumni Experience" to access the new features.

The Penn State Alumni Association worked with the Penn State Go team to develop the app’s content and features for alumni. The content will continue to evolve based on feedback from users.
