Youngstown State University had a great Math department with so many great professors. I’m totally in love with math department at YSU
YSU is a horrible place! The professors don't care. It's not very safe.
Youngstown State University is a very well developed and well taken care of campus. I've noticed that many people don't give it the credit it deserves due to it's location in the city of Youngstown. Overall, the campus living is great, as well as the food , resources, and most importantly, the education.

I would give myself the advice of always studying. College is all about studying if you do not study then you will not pass your tests and you will regret it. College it is all on you, your teacher is no longer holding your hand through everything and helping you through every step. College is very individual. One big theing for me would be time management, make sure that you manage your time wisley, because college work will stack up faster than you think making things become rather stressful. high school to college is a huge transition, but it is able to be done. Do not stress yourself out right before you go to college because if you put hard workinto college it will come easy. High school was a good learning experience, but college is a big step forward. Always study, turn in your work on time, go to class and never give up. Put 100 percent into everything you do in college.
Youngstown has a great atmosphere about it.
The range of race, culture, and age varies significantly.
The best thing about Youngstown State University would deffinatly have to be the challange. I believe this is the best thing about this school because to have a successful career one would have to show that they are up for any challange. The challange of completing Youngstown State University shows employers that you are one of the best to hire in your field.
The worst thing about my school would have to be the tuition being raised and pell grants taken away. Youngstown State is suppose to be a way for those stuggling financially to earn an education. The cost of tuition went up $1,300 within the past two years, this puts a stressful toll on those already in financial need. Some low income families get to go for free just because their parents don't have jobs, while my family works hard to earn a living and I do not even get a pell grant.
Any person should attend this school, it has many majors to choose from. It is still lower in tuition compared to other schools even after the outrageous raise in cost. I would reccoment this school to anyone looking to stay close to home and save some money.
I brag most about the Music School and my teacher. My private voice teacher is like my mom. I can talk to her whenever.
it is close to my home, and the school i have chosen has the classes i need to move forward in my career field
There is not a specific type of person that shouldn't attend this school. The only people that should not attend school would be the one's who are the one's that don't really care about school and they're attending just to go.
In the winter time, sometimes it can be bitter cold. Walking from building to building in the bitter cold is frustrating. I have free parking so it is a long walk for me to get to my designated building for classes. I dread the walk to and from my car in this frigid weather.
My school is best known for its array of interesting characters.
The academics are definitely what you make out of it. Your professors will know your name if you let them learn it. Class sizes range from 30-50 people usually so unless you skip most of the classes your professor will take initative to get to know you. They also understand that a lot students have to work during their time in college and are good about modifying the syllabus if there is a major conflict with the students schedule. A student is definitely not a number at YSU. I am a maketing major and nonprofit leadership minor and have been granted so many opportunities in the community because of my involvement with YSU.
Now being in my senior year of school, I credit my very successful college career to Youngstown State University. IThe school averages 16,000 students, which is big enough to always see and meet new people, but small enough to hold personal relationships with your professors.
All unmotivated students from the local area, mainly commuters and nontraditional students.
Greek life on campus is very popular, but does not define our campus. There are endless other organizations to be involved in. I was involved in Student Government, Academic Senate, student leadership councils, Student Nonprofit Leadership.
Find an older student in your major willing to guide you through your semesters and give you advice. Even if they are only a semester ahead of you, they will know things that advisers don't.
At first, I was only supposed to stay at YSU for my first year and then transfer. With numerous factors weighing my decision, I decided to stay at YSU. I was not happy with this choice at first, but looking back on it now, I never would have been able to excel in my academics without staying at YSU.
