Youngstown is a diverse campus with an exceptional amount of oppotunities to meet new people and explore different cultures. The campus is beautiful and there are over two thousand trees on campus, offering shade and a feeling of comfort. The teachers here really want their students to succeed and will help in any way they can, including offering one on one time and going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that their students pass.
