    ScheduleScheduleWelcome Welcome Week 2013: Penguin Boot Camp has been organized to help you become familiar with campus, meet other students, and connect with the resources youll need for a successful career at Youngstown State University.

    Though classes start on Wednesday, August 21, we invite you to come to campus a few days early to get your bearings before the rest of our students return. Youll be able to go on a Class Find Tour through the Center for Student Progress, hear a few words from YSU President Randy Dunn, and discover the wealth of resources in Maag Librarys Amazing Space.

    Theres lots of fun planned, too! Enjoy a movie on the lawn, take a chance singing karaoke with a live band, zip-line on campus, and kick off the fall sports season with football and soccer home openers.

    Look for the Penguin 101 symbol on the Welcome Week schedule to identify events that are particularly helpful for first time Penguins.
