"I attended Youngstown State University and ultimately decided on general studies for my bachelors because of my credits being spread out among several subject areas. I focused primarily on public and allied health, but took courses in criminal justice and environmental science as well. My overall experience with the university was a good one, where I had caring professors, manageable coursework, and support in the form of tutoring in any subject area I struggled. The only area where I particularly struggled was mathematics (as I know a lot of people do), but they had a great tutoring center dedicated specifically to help with any type of math you were taking. Overall, this university is a solid and affordable choice when getting your undergraduate degree, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue on with my masters in business administration here as well."

"small campus with affordable tuition. Major reason why i chose to receive my B.S degree here. YSU leadrship is pushing STEM....hard science, math engineer and math. The school has always been strong in those areas, not surprising given it's industrial heritage. The urban setting of the school gave me a great measure of comfort due to being in the middle of the real commercial world. I will say that your definition of what a good school is can be found through exploring the atmosphere of the city, classes, professors, and students by visiting, calling, looking on social media, and every other option you have to see the social media footprint people there have made. You might think what you find is good, and you might think it isnt. You might just not like the textbooks used in the courses you want to take, and thats a very strong predictive indicator of the quality of a course."

"YSU is a wonderful school, with many terrific programs, majors, and opportunities for the incoming freshman. The school is growing and expanding in an effort to offer the best experience possible for its students. It is also affiliated with the nearby medical school, which greatly benefits students heading in the medical direction."

"I am currently getting my Master's Degree in criminal Justice and I absolutely love this school. I went here for my Bachelors in Exercise Science and continued to get my Master's. It is a wonderful school and I suggest it to anyone interested. I am originally from out of state and everyone made me feel like I was at home. I learned more about myself by living within Youngstown and the education was a great experience."

"I completed my bachelors degree in Social Work from Youngstown State University through Lorain County Community Colleges partnership program. I enjoyed every aspect of this program. The class sizes were smaller, and scheduled class times were convenient to complete an internship placement as well as other employment opportunities. I thoroughly appreciated that the teachers knew who we were as individuals and genuinely cared for our education. My Advisor was extremely supportive and educated. She made it her personal mission to prepare each of us for our careers in Social Work. The program was also structured to prepare students to take the Ohio Licensed Social Work exam. I found the program to be affordable and flexible to the needs of its students. Overall, I am extremely grateful for my education experience through this institution. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in advancing their education in a Bachelors of Social Work."

"My college degree program is and was a great opportunity for someone who cannot afford to live in campus at a university. I started off at a community college and obtained an associates degree in Police Science. Because my community college was only a two year degree I had to seek my bachelors elsewhere. Luckily for me the community college I attended has a partnership program, where they partner with universities, so students like me can obtain a bachelors and not have to go to the actual campus. I started the partnership program through Youngstown state university, and have been able to take bachelors classes, not to far from my home. The partnership is a distance learning experience because the instructors are not on my actual campus, they are miles away. Therefore I watch them lecture from a monitor screen in a classroom at my community college. I have learned so much and have had nothing but great interaction with my instructors, considering they're on a different campus. I would recommend my program to any student who is like me and couldn't afford to go to an actual university."

"Great accredited business school. You don't need to pay an exuberant amount of money for school to get a good education"
