Student Outreach and Support

Dear YSU Student: 

As the Director of Student Outreach and Support at Youngstown State University, my role is to assist you in becoming a successful student and, eventually, a proud YSU graduate. 

Unfortunately, the road to graduation can have many twists and turns and, occasionally, a few roadblocks. Physical and mental issues, family responsibilities, work, extracurricular activities, and unexpected expenses are simply a part of life. While it can be easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged, it is my goal to assist you in getting through these tough times.

I am here to listen, offer advice on how to handle a situation, or assist with attainment of campus and community resources when necessary. Whatever the challenge, I am here to help.

I encourage you to stop by my office located in Kilcawley Center 2101 (on the 2nd floor, just above Jamba Juice). You can also reach me at either of the phone numbers listed below or through email. I am more than happy to meet with you outside of normal business hours as necessary.

If you have a concern about one of our students, please feel free to contact me so I can reach out to them. You may also refer a student to my office by completing the Refer a Person of Concern form.

I truly appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

Nicole Kent-Strollo
