YSU Open Houses and Orientation

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 later in the afternoon 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.

Personal Visits

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

  • Student name, email, grade, and high school.
  • Additional guest names and email addresses.
  • Two dates for potential visits. These must be:
    • A Thursday or a Friday.
    • 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.

Honors College Open House

The Honors College holds an annual open house event each fall. This event gives you and your parents a chance to learn about the Honors student experience and tour our residence hall, apartment building and student center, all while interacting with current Honors students, staff and professors. Please check back later for details on our 2019 open house.
