Mission

The mission of Penn State Homecoming is to celebrate tradition and instill pride in all members of the Penn State family through active engagement of students, alumni, faculty and staff across the community.

Vision

We believe that the traditional sense of a homecoming celebration encompassing a parade and football game has evolved, and strive to set a new standard for homecoming celebrations.. Penn State Homecoming organizes a number of exciting events in the spring and fall semesters culminating with the events of Homecoming Week.

Executive Director Bio

 Jillian Susi

 

My name is Jillian Susi and I am the Executive Director for Penn State Homecoming 2017. It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Penn State community through this role. Homecoming is so special because it provides students with the opportunity to celebrate the past, present, and future of our university as well as the experiences and traditions that make us Penn Staters.

I have been lucky enough to be involved in Homecoming since my freshman year here, and I have loved every second of it. The people that I’ve met and the lessons I’ve learned along the way have made this one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Homecoming 2017.

Since Penn State’s first Homecoming game in 1920, Homecoming has evolved into a successful student-run organization that continues to grow with each passing year. Our goal is to always create an experience that every Penn State student, alumnus, faculty and staff member can enjoy.

I know I speak for the entire executive committee when I say that we hope every member of the Penn State family can look back on Homecoming 2017 and remember why WE ARE... Penn State.

 

For The Glory!
