Membership at the University YMCA isn't like joining a YMCA gym or pool.
When you "purchase a membership," you are simply enfolding yourself into the Y community as a benefactor and participant.
The services and programs we provide are often free and open to the public, and this is why your financial support is so important.
As a member, you are also invited to events we hold for our members, such as the Annual Luncheon and Meeting as well as the Annual Auction and Dinner. These events (and all of our programs) are great ways to make new friends who hold dear the values shared among Y constituents: social justice, spiritual reflection, environmental responsibility, and mentoring a new generation of leaders.

Any amount is appreciated and increases our ability to provide services and programs to students and the local community!
For only $20, a student can establish their membership, securing their position in the generations of YMCA Alumni. A student membership pays itself back because it includes a free University YMCA t-shirt and two free lunches at the Y Thai Eatery, gifts that add up to a $25+ value.
