The Penn State Audio Engineering Society Student Section has been active since its establishment in late 1991. Recently, the student officers have made a concerted effort to increase the section’s visibility and outreach to university students in science and engineering disciplines at both the graduate and undergraduate level. To accomplish this, the authors built around the existing infrastructure by adding new events and programs to engage students at a variety of technical, artistic, and social levels. In this paper, the section’s core programming will be briefly discussed and followed by an examination of the additional events that have attracted new engineering students to the section.
