The Pennsylvania Kappa chapter at Mansfield University holds chapter meetings every other week.  In the fall, the chapter raised funds for their annual Christmas project – Santa's Helpers. Mansfield Last year the chapter bought Christmas gifts for two children, which included a bicycle for each child.  The children stated that having a new bike would be their dream gift for Christmas.  The chapter also celebrated the holiday season with an ugly sweater party in which they invited all students eligible to join Pi Gamma Mu.  30 students attended the party and had a great time.  In the spring, the chapter held its annual event, "Careers in Aging".  The event featured a panel discussion on the topic of "Aging in Place".  Over 80 students were in attendance.  Members of the chapter also joined a campus Relay for Life team raising over $500.  The chapter also participated in a campus-wide community service project.  Two officer initiation dinners and two induction ceremony luncheons were held in the fall and spring semesters.  The chapter concluded the spring semester with a celebration of graduates.  Dr. Janice Purk is the chapter sponsor.

WilmingtonThe Delaware Beta chapter at Wilmington University continues to be very active.  Each member of the chapter completes a service project for the cause or organization of their choice.  Each student provides at least 10 hours of dedicated service.  Each new member of the chapter also supports the annual Polar Bear Plunge.  The event raised over $4,000 last year and saw an increase in participation of 100% over the previous year.  The chapter hosts a Professional Networking event every April in which chapter alumni provide career advise and networking opportunities to undergraduates.  The chapter sponsor is Ms. Johanna Bishop.

W&J CollegeThe Pennsylvania Alpha Omicron chapter had another successful year at Washington and Jefferson College.  The chapter participates in a campus-wide social science dinner each year and has become the leading organization on campus to promote active discussion on critical issues.  The chapter sponsor, Dr. Yongsheng Wang, notes that the students at Washington and Jefferson are more curious and open-minded about the power of social science ideas than ever before.
