The event is an effort by the Office of Alumni and Events Management to help YSU graduates reconnect with or meet fellow Penguins living in their area. It also is part of a larger and continuing effort to organize alumni groups in cities across the nation.
“We are so excited to have 15 cities participating this year, including our first group from outside the United States,” said Mollie Hartup, assistant director of Alumni Relations and coordinator of the networking event. “We are always looking for new opportunities to engage YSU alumni at home and away.”
Participating cities are Akron/Canton; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago; Cleveland; Columbus; Dallas/Fort Worth; Las Vegas; New York; Orlando; the Research Triangle of North Carolina; San Francisco Bay area; South Florida; Sydney, Australia; Tampa Bay; and Youngstown.
This year, each location will play a video message from President Cynthia E. Anderson, updating alumni on the campus. For more details on activities at each site, visit the YSU National Networking Day site.
The Youngstown event is 5 to 7 p.m. at L’uva Bella Winery. To attend the Youngstown event, contact Erin DeBernado at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-941-2068 by June 20.
