Jillian Susi Named Homecoming 2017 Executive Director

Penn State Homecoming announced junior Jillian Susi will be the Executive Director for Homecoming 2017 Tuesday evening via Twitter. Susi was the Donor Relations Director for Homecoming 2016 and a Donor Relations Captain for Homecoming 2015.

A native of Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, Susi is studying public relations with a double minor in Spanish and political science. Outside of Homecoming, she is a THON committee member and serves as the Vice President of the College of Communications Student Council.

“Jillian is an incredible leader with great ideas for the future of Homecoming.” 2016 Executive Director Katie Gasior said. “Her contagious enthusiasm for Penn State will carry the organization throughout the year as they grow and expand Homecoming’s mission throughout the community.”

In her biography on the Penn State Homecoming website, Susi says her favorite part of Homecoming is “how it brings the past, present, and future students of Penn State together.”

As Executive Director, Susi will be responsible for leading Homecoming’s executive committee and 16 captain committees to put on Homecoming 2017 and each of its associated events.
