YSU reports record number of applicants

Posted: Updated:


The University reported 10,209 applicants for the coming school year.  That compares to 9,543 last year, 8,652 the previous year, and 4,749 in 2015.

Many of those applicants are on campus for “Crash Day”, which is a day of events designed to familiarize prospective students with what YSU has to offer.

Vistors may explore buildings and classes, talk to professors and students, and learn about majors and offerings.

Participants will be given lanyards and a nametag that will admit them to venues, events and entitle them to a free lunch.

Students and staff wearing red “I'm a YSU Penguin” t-shirts will serve as guides for the visitors.
