    Youngstown state is a wondwerful place to be and learn. The proffessors are awesome and love to teach and help students. And everyone on campus seems to get alone with each other.

    A medium size campus, with a very nice library, loads of free seminars, training sessions to learn by. There are also nice restaurants near the campus, and the staff and students are really nice, and helpful

    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.

    They are very helpful supporting the students with guidance and counseling. The tutor structure meets my needs as well.

    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.
