Honors College Open House set for Feb. 10

The Honors College at Youngstown State University is holding an open house on Feb. 10 on the campus of YSU.

The annual event gives prospective high school students and their parents a chance to learn about the Honors student experience and tour the Honors residence hall, apartment building and student center on campus, as well as interact with current Honors students, staff, professors and parents.

The open house will take place in the morning through early afternoon. Honors-eligible high school students can register at ysu.edu/honorsopenhouse. The last day to register is Feb. 5.

The YSU Honors College provides academically talented students with a community of excellence to develop their full intellectual and cultural potential. Exceptional students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds are challenged with advanced coursework, service-learning experiences and leadership opportunities both in and outside of the classroom and find a close network of friends and mentors through the program.

To be eligible for membership and scholarships offered through the Honors College, high school seniors must have an overall GPA of 3.5, as well as an ACT score of 26 or a score of 1260 on the new SAT (or a combined score of 1760 on the old SAT).
