Overall

As a small university, YSU has been able to make itself feel BIG, thanks to its diversity and wide range of majors available to students. What I like the most, is the events the university hold for it's students almost every week of the semester. They keep students occupied and allow them to enjoy the college life. The way they help out freshman students is a BIG PLUS for YSU. They make them get situated with the college environment pretty quick. As for tips, I recommend that new students meet their peer mentors once a week as they are a HUGE help, and go to the events on campus, because I assure you, there are lots of people here ready to make new friends.

Academics

YSU provides around 150 majors, and for a university this size, it's amazing to see how they are able to organize all this to students' needs. You may think I is all cramped but I YSU has managed to organize classes and timings accordingly so that there is no congestion on campus. The professors at YSU are above average. All the professors I've had thus far are respectful, fun, smart, and easy going. They've made class a lot less boring. The amount of work you get really depends on the course you take and how you are able to organize yourself. You have to expect time where you are required to do lots of work (COLLEGE!), but then there are times where you have almost nothing to do.

College Life

YSU is VERY SOCIAL! Students make new friends EVERYDAY! I really feel comfortable on a campus where students enjoy engaging with others, and YSU provides that comfort. Very nice people here! There are probably over 200 clubs you can join at YSU. Be it sports, gaming, books worms, crafting... and more! There are multiple organizations at YSU. Charity, sports, social and other organizations can be found around campus. The Fraternities and Sororities also host multiple events from time to time for students to enjoy. As for safety, YSU has it's own police and fire departments. Security system are found in all buildings across campus to assure safety for everyone. There is almost ZERO percent crime at YSU. YSU is HUGE on athletics! It has it's own Stambaugh football stadium, a large Rec center, a pool, tennis courts, more than one basketball court, and a currently under construction soccer field. The YSU athletic teams are always competing against other schools. Students are always welcome to watch the matches that take place. YSU always posts its activities for the weekend to keep those lonely students occupied. They have activities taking place on and off campus almost every weekend. Greek organizations also add to the weekend fun with their own events.
