The Laurel Circle is a recognition level within the Mount Nittany Society for members whose lifetime giving total has reached or exceeded $1 million. The conditions of an irrevocable commitment are the same as for Mount Nittany Society. An invitation to join the Laurel Circle is extended only by the President of the University.
Laurel Circle includes many of the University’s most distinguished philanthropic supporters. Laurel Circle members are leaders in life as well as philanthropy, counting among them CEOs and directors of Fortune 500 companies, trustees of foundations and charities with national and international reputations, and recipients of honorary degrees from distinguished colleges and universities across the nation.
New members are inducted at an annual awards ceremony, where they are presented to the University President and the other members of the society.
