    Take time to visit. YSU is very welcoming. 5-star all the way.

    If you are ever having a hard time in a class there are free tutors available. Plenty of places to get food or drinks, and a great recreation center.

    A tip for students is to study a lot and not to go to a lot of wild parties. Sometimes people get robbed going to the parties.

    Everybody says it, but I'll say it again: Apply for as much aid as early as humanly possible! Campus is VERY large, so I'd highly recommend obtaining a campus map before going to orientation or taking a placement test. There's also a campus map smartphone app -- just ask any of the staff about it! It's really easy to get lost on campus until you know your way around, so, again, a map is highly advisable! Even if you don't HAVE to take a placement test, I would still recommend it if you have the option. It could save you time and money for a fraction of the cost! As regards Orientation, every first-semester freshman has to attend one. Therefore, to give you a small edge, I would recommend that you sign up for the earliest orientation day possible. You see, that's the day that they register you for your first classes (what they call a tentative schedule) after your advisement. By going as early as possible, you will have the most options available to you (because the class/es that you want to take may be filled up later). The other advantage is that your tentative schedule isn't set in stone -- you can change it at any time. By registering as early as possible, you will have more time to make any changes that you might want to make.
