Vote For Penn State’s Net Impact Chapter As The Nation’s Best

Penn State’s Net Impact chapter, entering its third year of existence, was already nominated as one of the nation’s best. The chapter’s website explains Net Impact National is a non-profit organization made up of more than 50,000 students and professional leaders that aim to “inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.” Numerous events are hosted every year that aim to educate the Smeal community with testimonies from chapter members about sustainability in professional environments.

The national organization named 12 chapters across four categories for “Chapter of the Year.” In the undergraduate tab are Indiana’s Kelley School of Business, New York University’s Stern School of Business, and Penn State’s Smeal College of Business. The winner is decided with a four-point system — three points from Net Impact Central’s judges and one from a popular vote. At the time of writing, the Nittany Lions trail NYU by a mere 90 votes.

You can vote at Net Impact’s website. The winner receives national recognition as well as two tickets to the 2015 Net Impact Conference in Seattle this November. Penn State is known for its elite professional network, and that starts with students, so make sure to support the Nittany Lions early and often.
