Penn State leads Big Ten GOLD Alumni Challenge

Penn State is participating with other Big Ten universities in the
first Big Ten GOLD Challenge to encourage giving by "GOLD" alumni -- Graduates of the Last Decade (1992 through 2001).
A focus group of Penn State alumni suggested the idea as a way to have a friendly, non-sports competition among Big Ten universities. Currently, Penn State leads all other conference institutions with more than 13 percent of its GOLD alumni making gifts. This program is intended as an ongoing competition, but the initial challenge concludes June 30. To see current standings, visit To learn
