    I would definitely say that my money's going to the right place! Not only does the University build and maintain great facilities and beautiful campus grounds, it has developed a broad array of various majors from accounting to teaching, and pretty much everything in between!

    I was originally a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where I paid $32,000 a year for a sub-par education, cranky and unhelpful professors, and absolutely no supplemental assistance. Now I'm at YSU, paying less than half that price per year, and getting more out of my education than I ever could have imagined.

    The tuition at YSU is less expensive than at the more well known schools. Why pay thousands more for the same degree when you can do just as well at YSU and pay much less.
