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.
