Update on COVID-19

Hello all! We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this unexpected time. As the weather is getting nicer and the city is beginning to reopen, we just wanted to check in, and provide some summer updates.
  • Summer Events: As of now, all spring events are on-hold/ postponed. Depending on how the summer reopening goes, we may be able to hold a bar tour later in the summer or fall. We tentatively booked a Party Barge (more info below in this email). 
  • Fall Events: After Penn State announces the fall/spring school and football schedule, we will begin to determine what fall events can be held. As of now, we are waiting on updates about the fall semester, and will keep you informed as we get more information.

Penn State Masks

In an effort to protect everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Penn State Alumni Association reached out to offer an opportunity to get a branded Penn State Alumni Association face mask.

If interested in purchasing a mask, please submit orders HERE by May 28, 2020.

Once we have more information from the Alumni society about when they will arrive, we can plan a drop-off or pick up individually with those who placed orders.

See design below:


Please note, this mask is not intended to be used as a piece of medical grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The use is not intended to replace other recommended measures to limit the community spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, washing your hands, and refraining from touching your face.

Penn State Texas License Plates
Coming Soon!

Our friends in the Penn State Houston chapter have started the process of getting Penn State Texas License plates approved by TXDOT! See the design below.

If you are interested in purchasing one of the license plates when they are available, you can fill out this form in order to be contacted directly. We will also announce in a future email when license plates are available for purchase. Currently they are being approved by the state. We Are!

Summer Party Barge- Save the Date

We have tentatively reserved a Party Barge for Saturday, August 1, 2020. Based on the safety precautions happening in Austin during that time, we will make a final decision regarding whether or not the Party Barge will be held (and associated details) as the date gets closer.

Please be on the lookout for updates via our social media and emails later this summer about details!


Parlor & Yard Re-opening

Our friends over at Parlor and Yard are reopening after the COVID quarantine! If you find yourself in the downtown area, be sure to stop by and say hello or grab a drink to show your support to a great partner of ours!
