We are Back by Popular Demand as we welcome the start of another semester. This year's theme brings out the excitement of a new year and how thrilling it is to be a penguin HERE at YSU. 

Welcome Week begins on Sunday, August 29 with an Outdoor Movie on the Lawn at Heritage Park. Classes begin on Monday, August 30 and festivities continue throughout the week. Favorite traditions include a Zipline on Hazel Street, Student Organization Fair, Puppy Palooza, Kilcawley Center Block Party, Meet the Greeks, Build a Penguin, Grill & Chill Tailgate, YSU Football Game, First Year Tie Dye, and the Foam Party on Friday, September 3 as the conclusion of a busy first week on campus.
