Enrollment at Youngstown State University is at its highest level in two decades, officials said.
According to preliminary 14th-day counts, enrollment is 15,194 this fall semester, an increase of 512 students over last year. That represents a 3.5 percent jump.
It is the highest enrollment since 1990, when the number of students on campus was 15,454. In the past decade, YSU’s enrollment has climbed by 3,407 students or nearly 30 percent.
“Our continued enrollment growth is a testament to the quality of our academic programs, the dedication of our faculty and staff and the hard work of everyone on campus to carry YSU’s message across the region,” President Cynthia E. Anderson said.
“But getting students on campus is just the first step. The job now is to help every single one of our students do well in their classes, to graduate and to pursue their personal and professional goals. These students have chosen YSU; we are committed to their success.”
