Message from University President James Tressel

Dear University Community,

I am proud to introduce you to the YSU campus. Our campus safety record is exemplary. Annually our incidence of crime ranks first or second lowest among Ohio's state universities. We continue to take aggressive action to address the safety concerns of our urban campus.

Our excellent safety record is not accomplished alone. A crucial factor in our campus safety program is the willingness of all of us at the university--students, faculty and staff--to take responsibility for helping to maintain a safe and secure campus. Information and personal awareness are our most effective defenses against crime. Take time now to explore our safety site and learn about safety resources that can help you avoid potentially dangerous situations.

By working together, we can enhance the safety and security of everyone at Youngstown State.

James Tressel, President
Youngstown State University
