Overall Rating

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.
