A reasonably priced institution of higher learning, a.k.a., "the academy on the hill." It was founded in Youngstown, Ohio (between Pittsburgh and Cleveland), as a law school in the YMCA, eventually became a state college and then a state university. It has a great reputation for many of its degrees, including engineering, physical therapy, nursing, business and education. It also has a NEOMFA and a doctorate in education. The campus is sprawling and well-attended by landscapers. The Butler Institute of American Art is surrounded by the YSU campus. Nearby is the world renowned Mill Creek Park.
Many Northeastern Ohio residents--and people from all over the world--attend to save money and end up loving the institution and its faculty and staff, many of whom have national reputations. Killer sports teams! World-class library, Maag Library on Wick Avenue!
There are great Italian restaurants within walking distance, and the downtown has been revived. There are live jazz clubs and great martini bars! Check it out!
Youngstown State University is a tremendous institution where you can obtain a superior education in many fields.
