Penguin Preview Day Schedule

Overview of Penguin Preview Day Events

When you get here. 

We have reserved the M-30 Parking Deck (free of charge) for YSU Penguin Preview Day participants. Please use GPS Address: 453 Wick Ave. Youngstown OH 44502 for exact directions to the parking deck’s Wick Avenue entrance. Once parked, please make your way to the 4th floor of the deck and take the walking bridge over into the core of campus. From there, please follow the neon yellow "Visit Day Registration" signs to the WATTS.

We will also have shuttles available the morning of the event to deliver participants from the parking deck to the WATTS. Shuttle pickup will be located at the McDonough Museum of Art from 7:45 - 9:15 AM. Simply walk out of the parking deck through the Wick Avenue entrance and make an immediate right at the sidewalk to reach the loading zone.
