We are so proud of our YSUSHI alumni. Tonight during dinner at the MVR, our students heard from Levi Smith, entrepreneur and co-owner of Coze Coffee Bar at Whitehouse Fruit Farms which he opened with his twin sister when they were freshman at YSU! Tomorrow we will hear from Michael Miller who is studying film in NYC after taking the Documentary Film class at YSUSHI. His sister came all the way from Florida to attend our program this year.


We couldn't have ordered better weather for the 2018 YSUSHI. Our students are having a great time exploring our campus and community and we are excited to have them with us this week!


We are continuing to accept applications for the 2018 YSU Summer Honors Institute. Crime Scene Investigation and Robotics are closed, but the following classes have space available: Coding Python with Raspberry Pi, Math & Magic, Don't Be Nervous: It's Just the Way You Move, Documentary Filmmaking, Exploring Youngstown and its People, Healthcare for the 21st Century, and Rapid Prototyping.


We are off to a great start with the 2017 Summer Honors Institute! Teambuilding activities at the Student Recreation Center.
