Penn Alumni Club of Southwest Florida

Welcome to the Penn Alumni Club of Southwest Florida

We take great pride in recently being recognized as the Best Small Club in Penn's Global Alumni Network. Our club's strategy is to:
1) Promote Penn reconnection among alumni with a regular schedule of social/educational events that appeal to a broad spectrum of club members.
2) Provide Penn camaraderie for all Penn alumni. Our club is unique in serving alumni from all Penn undergraduate and grad schools. Everyone is welcome: Penn doctors, dentists, lawyers, engineers, business people, educators and nurses. We even welcome "Snow Birds" spending the winter season in the paradise of Southwest Florida.
3) Deliver Penn alumni communications through our web site, our Penn Quaker Messenger, special mailings, our email distribution list and updates at group functions.
4) Proactively interact with secondary schools to ensure that Penn attracts Southwest Florida's most outstanding students.
5) Support Penn development efforts to help achieve University priorities especially endowed scholarships.
If you are interested in joining our club, please contact by email either Club President, Denise McNulty or Membership Director, Jodi Grosflam. We hope to see you at a Penn event in Southwest Florida soon! You are welcome to join the club or serve on the committees that support these events. And if you don't see the type of event that interests you, maybe you would like to organize it! We welcome your feedback.
We hope that you find something to your liking on this site, and look forward to toasting to Dear Old Penn at a future event with you.
Hurrah, hurrah Pennsylvania!
Hurrah for the Red and the Blue!
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah, hurrah,
Hurrah for the Red and Blue!
