Once a Penguin, Always a Penguin

We know that being a Youngstown State Penguin is more than just walking across the stage at commencement, it's about being part of a community made up of more than 105,000 proud Penguins who have graduated from YSU since the university's founding. We are Y and Proud of all our alumni, and we are here to keep you connected to other Youngstown State alumni across the country, and around the world.
