Once a Penguin, Always a Penguin

We know that being a Youngstown State Penguin is more than just walking across that stage for graduation, it's about being part of a community made up of more than 91,700 alumni. We are Y and Proud, and we are here to keep you connected to other Youngstown State alumni across the country.


Our new, "All-Alumni" Alumni Society!

YSU has expanded its Penguin family by including all YSU graduates in the Alumni Society! YSU is proud of its accomplished alumni who live, work and lead all over the country and the world. To assure that all of our graduates have the opportunity to remain connected to YSU, we have converted the Alumni Society from a dues-paying society to a non-dues society, whereby all YSU degreed alumni are members. This new, expanded Alumni membership will enhance inclusiveness and offer outreach and services to a constituency of more than 91,000 loyal alumni. We are excited about expanding and augmenting our Alumni Society through this change! To see the benefits of being in our new, all-alumni Alumni Society, check out the "All-Alumni" Alumni Society Benefits page

There's Always Something Going On

With so many alumni located across the world, there are constantly events for Penguin alumni. Our alumni Facebook page is the best way to keep informed about events and opportunities to engage other Penguins.
