College Life Rating

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.
