The YSU Honors College Open House is your chance to learn about the Honors student experience, tour our residence hall, learn more about your major, and interact with current Honors students, staff, and professors. Whether you are just starting to look or are already sure you want to apply, everyone can take something away from this day! This year's open house will take place on Friday, September 27, 2019 from about 8:45 AM to 12:30 PM. View the agenda or register now!


Interested in scheduling an individual or small-group visit instead? We'd love to meet with you to talk about the Honors College and to give you a tour of our Honors facilities. To schedule a personal visit, email honors@ysu.edu the following information:

  • Student name, email, grade, high school, and graduation year.
  • Additional guest names and email addresses.
  • Two dates for potential visits. These must be at least one week in advance of the date the email is sent.
  • Student's intended major.
  • Whether or not the student is interested in living on campus.

We will get back to you with a confirmed visit date after we receive your email, along with visit details.


Planning to attend the next YSU Penguin Preview Day open house? You will have two chances to meet us and learn more about the Honors College that day: during morning activities or during the Honors College session. We'll go over everything you need to know about being an Honors student!

And for students who will be attending YSU in the fall and have already been accepted into Honors, you will have a unique opportunity to meet us during your YSU Orientation. All future Honors students must attend our morning session that takes place on each Orientation day beginning at 8:00 a.m. During this session, we'll talk about registering for your first honors courses, starting your volunteerism, getting involved, and living on campus.
