The Outstanding Club of the Year award recognizes the student organization which has done exceptional campus and community service, has represented the campus to the best of its ability and which has had the greatest positive impact on the co-curricular life of students at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.
This year the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Surveying Society was awarded this honor based on their outstanding commitment to the campus, community and fellow club members. Members of the Surveying Society played an integral role in the SGA's Annual Haunted Forest, participated in two road-side cleanups, volunteered at Habitat for Humanity, and helped coordinate the Fall and Spring Semester End of Semester bonfires. Members have done outreach to local high schools and to high school visitors to our campus through their volunteerism with our Enrollment Management/Admissions Office. They offered on-campus Geo Cache activities that provided students with a compass-driven adventure into the great outdoors. This club has done amazing outreach for their fellow students by assisting them in securing both internships and employment after graduation. Their members can be found all over the United States, from New Jersey to Alaska.
