Honors College Open House set for Oct. 13

The Honors College at Youngstown State University hosts an open house Oct. 13 on campus.

The annual event gives high school students and their parents a chance to hear from current Honors students, staff, faculty and YSU President Jim Tressel; tour the Honors residence halls and facilities; and learn more about the program. Students will also have a chance to explore their academic area of interest, as well as the YSU campus.

The open house will take place in the morning through early afternoon. Interested Honors-eligible high school students should register online.

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, and a minimum ACT score of 26 or SAT score of 1260 on the new SAT (or 1760 combined score on the old SAT).
