Dear Fellow members,
On behalf of the trustees of your Wharton-Penn Alumni Association of the Philippines, I am delighted to welcome you to our official website.
Your club is composed of 275 members and it is the largest and arguably the most engaged US alumni club in the Philippines . It is a diverse group of individuals and leaders involved in various business, professional, government and, philanthropic institutions. The club provides an ideal venue for an exchange of ideas through it’s numerous talks on current issues as well as several fellowship, sports and community outreach activities.
On this site you will find a list of events which your trustees have planned for this year together with events that are organized by the University in the region and in the US. There is likewise a photo gallery of activities held in the past. You will also find various links in this website which would be of interest to alumni including the list of committees, a directory of fellow members, career opportunities, a networking forum, alumni news, and information on various scholarship and endowment funds.
We encourage all our members to participate in the club’s activities or serve in the committees not only to experience the camaraderie but also to meet a diverse group of individuals in terms of interest background and admittedly, also age .
On a personal note, I have served in the board for a total of six years in the past in various positions and committees . It has been most fulfilling to serve the club due to the numerous people whom we have helped through our outreach programs and due to the members whom I have met and I have gotten to know much better. It is only in serving and working with fellow members that we witness their work ethic and true character regardless of how minuscule or huge the task or project maybe.
I wish to welcome again our fellow members and I look forward to meeting all of you in one of the organized activities of the club.
President Wharton-Penn Alumni Association of the Philippines
