Registered Student Organizations

Interested in getting involved with student organizations at YSU? We have an active community of more than 200 student organizations on campus. We encourage you to get involved with one of the existing organizations. If you find that none of these organizations meet your needs, you can start your own.  Feel free to contact the Student Activities Office if you have any questions along the way.

To view our active student organizations login to the Penguin Portal:

  1. Once there, under “e-Services” to the left, click on the “Student Organizations” link.
  2. A new tab will open and then you will automatically be in the Symplicity system.
  3. Click the Student Organization Tab at the top and click Find a Group to Join.
  4. From there you can search, apply, or show interest.
