I really enjoy Youngstown State University! Here, I have found what I am passionate about. The campus is beautiful and my professors have been great so far! I have enjoyed so many activities and events over the past few years and I hope to enjoy my next few years here as well.
Was really good and everyone wanted you to reach your goals. Only issue was the bathrooms at times they got nasty. I made a ton of friends! They helped me through the year and adjust to being home and away from my family and friends back home. The professors were all helpful and encouraging to get good grades. There was a lot of area for one to grow in responsibility and respect for their self and others.
