New students will begin to discover and pursue intellectual depth and a strong commitment to learning. Students should also begin to seek out opportunities to engage and become a part of the university community and explore the rich culture and diversity at YSU.
New students should make it a priority to develop relationships with other students, faculty, and staff and take advantage of the extensive support system at YSU. Students should also be aware of the locations and services offered by the academic support services including: The Center for Student Progress, Math Assistance Center, Reading and Study Skills Center, and the Writing Center.
At orientation, students begin the journey of self-discovery and assume more control over their journey. Students will partner with an academic advisor during advisement and registration to determine academic goals and pursuits. New students should leave orientation excited about the potential to learn and the ability to succeed as a new member of the YSU community.
