    I am amazed that such an inexpensive university can offer so much for students of all shapes and sizes. Despite its large size, YSU has a very small-town community feel, and everyone is incredibly friendly and smart. I can't imagine myself anywhere else now that I'm here.

    YSU is great for certain people, but not me. The student life is kind of a drag here. Great education, programs, and professors if you can utilize them right!

    its really hit or miss. There is a only a handful of good teachers and the tutors that are there rarely help. The dorm room are very loud and they aren't very nice. I would definitely not recommend going to this school if you want a great education.

    If I can describe YSU in three sentences; I would say that it is pretty overwhelming at first. Once you get your first day out of the way though, it can be pretty fun.

    Definitely a commuter college. There are a lot of extracurricular activities; they're just not obvious/well-advertised. Overall, YSU offers a great college experience for what you pay.

    The school has made some major improvements in the past three years. Academically speaking, the professors do a terrific job in explaining course material. Athletics and campus life also provided students with wonderful opportunities in meeting people and gaining connections.
