The Penguin Club is the booster organization that supports Youngstown State University student-athletes participating in 20 Division I sports. Your support helps provide scholarships and grant-in-aid, which enable our student-athletes to pursue their education while competing in the Horizon League and Missouri Valley Football Conference.
Membership is open to alumni, friends of the university, businesses, foundations and our great fans. As the cost of both higher education and athletic competition continues to rise, so does the challenge of competing at a Championship Level. To meet this challenge, the YSU Athletic Department relies on Penguin Club membership, fund-raising events and special donors to provide the margin for excellence each year.
Donations through the Penguin Club go to support the overall experience for the student-athletes who represent Youngstown State University. Funds generated through the Penguin Club help offset scholarship funding and support the general operating budget of YSU Athletics. Your support allows our students to be true ambassadors for the university - competing as CHAMPIONS in the classroom and in competition.
