About Us

Thank you for visiting our website.

The College Gift Outlet was created in early 2016 by Penn State alum Lawrence S. Brown (Class of 1986) with the goal of providing “WE ARE … Penn State” merchandise “for Penn State alumni, fans, family and friends from a Penn State alum.”

We sell only officially-licensed products to make sure that Penn State receives the licensing revenue that helps to keep our alma matter strong.

The College Gift Outlet’s goals are to provide:

  • Quality Penn State products
  • Competitively-priced Penn State merchandise
  • Exceptional customer service to Penn State alumni, fans, family and friends

Lawrence Brown has, since his graduation, been a steadfast Penn State benefactor as a Lifetime Member of the Alumni Association, Nittany Lion Club, College of Agricultural Science Alumni Association, Penn State Dairyman’s Club, and Western New York Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association.

He is a Wall of Honor benefactor to the Penn State Berkey Creamery, and donor to the Penn State Alumni Walk and Penn State Alumni Courtyard.

To achieve the goals of The College Gift Outlet, Lawrence secured the services of his cousin, Randall, a semi-retired executive with more than 40 years of professional business development experience who manages all facets of the business.

The College Gift Outlet is committed to providing you with a great shopping experience and will do its absolute best to earn and keep your business.

Product offerings will continue to expand as the business grows to make The College Gift Outlet what you want it to be.

The College Gift Outlet is your “WE ARE … Penn State” store!
