The new Dom Rosselli court highlights an extensive list of recent renovations inside the arena.

The Beeghly Physical Education Center serves as the home for the Youngstown State University volleyball program as well as the men's and women's basketball teams. Beeghly Center is located on the northwest end of YSU's scenic downtown campus and comprises part of the Penguins' on-campus athletic venues. Opened in the 1972-73 school year, the arena has received significant upgrades this decade. Most recently, a new Connor PermaFlex floor in the main gym was installed this past summer. Earlier in the academic year, a new weight room was opened on the third level to accommodate YSU’s athletic programs housed in Beeghly Center. In May 2002, the facility underwent more than $2.5 million in renovations that included a new front and rear lobby and new hallways and locker rooms. Also a new $150,000 sound

system, two additional scoreboards and expanded press-row seating were added. The multipurpose facility also includes an Olympic-sized swimming and diving pool, racquetball and squash courts, classrooms and administrative offices. Beeghly Center was dedicated on Dec. 23, 1972, when the Penguins, under Hall of Fame coach Dom Rosselli, played host to Ohio University. The original seating capacity of 6,000 was altered prior to the 198384 college basketball season by adding permanent seats at both ends of the court and 1,260 chairback seats at mid-court. The facility has a current capacity of 6,300 for basketball seating. Since 2004 the Beeghly Center has hosted the Horizon League Volleyball Championship, an in-season tournament and top-25 teams Ohio State and Dayton.

SEASON OUTLOOK The optimism surrounding Youngstown State volleyball is as high as it’s been this decade. The program showed significant progress in the win column and overall competitiveness last season despite playing with only one senior and two juniors. YSU won more league games last season than the previous six combined, and five more were decided in the fifth set. With all but one starter returning and a renewed hunger, the Penguins have their sights set at continuing the climb up the league standings. While the Penguins lose an All-Horizon League right-side hitter with Jessica Fraley’s graduation, seniors Ebony Barbosa and Karla Everhart join a powerful junior class at the net and a host of talented underclassmen in the back row. “We’re going to have more depth at every position that we’ve had in my four years here,” Head Coach Joe Bonner said. “We return the main core of players, and I don’t see why we can’t be one of the top three or four teams in our conference. “This group has been playing together for three years now, and we have a lot of players that have played every single game for the last two years. There’s a lot of experience, and a lot of players can step up.” Barbosa and Everhart are now in the spotlight as the leaders who will be counted on to take YSU further into contention. Barbosa is the most experienced player on the squad - and among the entire Horizon League while Everhart enters her third season running the offense as the starting setter. “Ebony passes almost 60 percent of the balls, and Karla touches the ball on every play,” Bonner said. “They’ve been the ones who have shaped the program to what it is now. They stuck through a lot of things the last couple years.” “Their expectations are higher - everyone’s are. Our efforts this offseason in the weight room and on the court have shown that.”

PENGUINS VOLLEYBALL going to be expected to terminate. That’s not something we’ve had in a while.” Redshirt freshmen Kelsi Bitter and true freshman Brittany Grove will also compete for time on the outside. Bitter had a strong spring and she, like Grove, have the potential to develop into strong all-around players as primary passers, defenders and attackers. „ Middle Hitter As a collective group, the Penguins are by far the most experienced up the middle with two tested juniors and a sophomore. Junior Ruth Boscaljon is the most heralded player on the squad after collecting Co-Newcomer of the Year and All-Horizon League honors as a freshman. Among her already impressive list of accomplishments, she owns a school-record .293 career hitting percentage, she is the first player in YSU history to reach 700 kills as a sophomore and she already ranks 10th in career blocks with 243. She has ranked in the top four of the league in hitting percentage in each of her first two seasons. Classmate Allison Heinz is coming off a solid sophomore campaign in which she quietly led the team in hitting percentage and block assists in league games. Sophomore Haley Kapferer played in 20 matches last year and showed the ability to be a force at the net when she collected five blocks in a match during the second weekend. “Ruth has really high expectations for herself,” Bonner said. “Just by seeing her dedication this summer, there’s no doubt in my mind that she can come out and be one of the best hitters in the conference. She just has that mentality. She’s in great shape, and she’s worked extremely hard in the weight room. “Between Ruth and Allison, they might have not played in three or four games total in the last two years. I’m excited to see what Haley does with a year under her belt now at this speed.”

„ Outside Hitter „ Opposite Side Hitter Barbosa leads an outside hitter group that is loaded with versatile athletes who could each play a significant role. Barbosa has played in 87 matches through her first three years, and she’s progressed into one of the top all-around players in school history. Coming off a career year in which she had 327 kills and 400 digs, she enters this season with 736 kills and 764 digs in her career, and she will become the fifth player in YSU history to finish with 1,000 of each if she even nears her totals from a year ago. Junior Kaitlin O’Hara will have a bigger role on the outside, both because of her ability to finish and her 6-foot, 3-inch stature. She averaged 2.4 kills per game and had 69 blocks in 26 matches as a freshman. “Ebony is that calming presence on the court because she rarely gets rattled,” Bonner said. “Kaitlin is going to be an X-factor. She’s going to be banging a lot of balls on the left side, and she’s

The Penguins will have a new starter on the opposite side for the first time in four years with Fraley gone, and another left-hander in Tasha Reid is the heir apparent. Reid, who stands 6-foot-2 and possesses great leaping ability, will help tremendously in blocking. A redshirt freshman, she will be looked upon to contribute immediately after a solid spring. “Tasha is going to be a fun story to talk about the next couple of years. She showed a tremendous amount of upside this spring. In the matches that we played she put up some big numbers,” Bonner said. O’Hara may also slide over to play on the opposite side. „ Setter Everhart returns to run the offense as the starting setter for the third straight year. She has

Junior middle hitter Allison Heinz led the team in hitting percentage and block assists in conference games last season.

2,393 assists in her tenure, and all but 57 of them have come in the past two seasons. She needs just 25 more to move into fourth place on YSU’s career chart. Sophomore Dani Soubliere, who played in 22 matches last season, will add depth as she recovers from knee surgery. “Besides bringing a ton of experience, Karla has the ability to be one of the best setters in the conference,” Bonner said. “She just has to take that on her shoulders and run with it. She’s been doing this for three years, and this program means a lot to her.” „ Defensive Specialist / Libero Sophomore Laurie Shives returns to be the leader in the back row while junior Dana Leslie and two freshmen will make the defense its deepest in years. Shives emerged as the 2007 campaign progressed and became the starting libero. She finished with a team-high 437 digs – the third most for a single season in school history – and posted at least 20 digs in 10 different matches. Leslie saw action in roles ranging from the starting libero to starting at outside hitter, but she’ll be looked upon to contribute mainly in the back row this season. Freshmen Amanda Gray and Brittany McNeal are both in the mix to see plenty of playing time. Gray was an honorable mention All-Ohio pick as a senior when her team won the Division II state title, and McNeal was a three-sport star in Pennsylvania. “Laurie did a wonderful job for us last year as a freshman, and this year we have four people looking for action,” Bonner said. “I’m excited to see what happens.”

Horizon League: Raise Your Sights Aspiring to teach young people, through athletic competition, the value of learning, service to others and personal responsibility elebrating its 30th anniversary in 200809, the Horizon League continues to aspire toward its goal of being one of the nation’s leading athletics conferences while being recognized as a leader in the development of student-athletes as leaders and role models. The Horizon League membership features ten public and private institutions that have impressive academic reputations and a storied tradition of broad-based athletic programs. Current membership includes Butler University, Cleveland State University, the University of Detroit Mercy, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, Valparaiso University, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Wright State University and Youngstown State University. The Horizon League’s primary focus is on adding value to the educational experience through its four platforms of athletic performance, academic achievement, community outreach, and personal responsibility and accountability. It is the League’s belief that athletics is a powerful and visible resource tool that can be used to enhance student-athletes’ collegiate experience. The Horizon League’s goals are to enhance the holistic university experience for the student-athlete, to create an affiliation of institutions with similar athletic goals, and to adhere to the principals of integrity, diversity, excellence and growth. The Horizon League sponsors competition in 19 sports – nine for men (baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis) and ten for women (basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis and volleyball). In all sports, all teams participate in their respective postseason League

C

championships regardless of regular-season performance, allowing all student-athletes an opportunity to qualify for NCAA championships. The League receives automatic bids to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. The Horizon League is headquartered in Indianapolis, the “Amateur Sports Capital of the World,” with offices in the Pan American Plaza (201 S. Capitol Avenue), located a block from Lucas Oil Stadium and just minutes from Conseco Fieldhouse, the State Capitol Building, Victory Field and the NCAA national office. A PROUD HISTORY Founded on June 16, 1979, as the Midwestern City Conference with six charter members, the League changed its name to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference in 1985 and added women’s sports for the 1986-87 academic year. Charter members of the conference included current members Butler and Loyola as well as the University of Evansville, Oklahoma City University, Oral Roberts University and Xavier University. Among other current members, Detroit joined in 1980, and Cleveland State, UIC, Green Bay, Milwaukee and Wright State came aboard in 1994 in the largest non-merger conference expansion in history, with Youngstown State joining in 2001 and Valparaiso in 2007. On June 4, 2001, the Horizon League unveiled its current name and ushered in a new dynamic direction that has brought the League closer to its stated goal of being one of the nation’s top ten conferences with a focus on enhancing the student-athletes experience by upgrading the League’s market and competitive positions.

COACHING STAFF

PENGUINS VOLLEYBALL

J O E B O N N ER Head Coach | Fourth Year | Frostburg State, 1997 Now in his fourth season at the helm of the Youngstown State volleyball program, head coach Joe Bonner is beginning to see his vision of turning the Penguins into a Horizon League contender become a reality. He’s completely reshaped the program by recruiting top-level players, scheduling nationally-ranked teams and establishing the same mentality that got him to five NCAA Tournaments as an assistant. In each of his first three seasons, the team has shown marked improvement in the win column and its competitiveness on the court. During the 2007 campaign, Bonner guided the Penguins to their highest win total (12) since the 2000 season when they won 14 in the Mid-Continent Conference. The Guins finished in seventh place - a school best since joining Horizon League in 2001 - and won more league matches than the previous six seasons combined. YSU defeated league runnerup Valparaiso twice, and five of its conference losses came in five sets. For the second straight season, a YSU player was named to the AllHorizon League Team when Jessica Fraley earned the postseason honor. Fraley, who earned CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District honors and Academic All-League laurels, became just the ninth player in history to record 1,000 career kills. Her 427 kills in 2007 also rank fourth on the YSU single-season kills list. She went on to be named YSU’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year. The Penguins’ improvement came with Fraley as the only senior and one of just three upperclassmen. Ebony Barbosa and Karla Everhart, the two juniors on the squad who have been with Bonner from his start at YSU, both had the best year of their careers. Barbosa had 327 kills and 400 digs while Everhart had 1,211 assists and 310 digs. In May 2006, Bonner’s signed a recruiting class ranked in the top 100 by prepvolleyball.com that has helped lead the progression. One of those recruits, Ruth Boscaljon, became the first Youngstown State volleyball player to earn All-Horizon League honors and just the second player in school history to garner a

6

newcomer-of-the-year award. Utilizing three freshmen and two limited-experienced sophomores for much of the 2006 season, the Penguins turned in a three-match improvement in the win column from Bonner’s first year. Boscaljon set a Youngstown State freshman record with 363 kills and 115 blocks while Everhart dished out 1,125 assists as a sophomore. During his initial campaign, Bonner guided the Penguins through an injury-plagued 7-22 season, but he instilled a strong competitive desire. Included in the Penguins’ losses were five five-game setbacks, all to Horizon League foes. Abby Ettenhofer, Katie Shea and Crystal Duncan each capped their playing days with career-best numbers. Ettenhofer led the team with 334 kills while Shea owned a team-best 106 blocks and Duncan added 173 kills and 153 digs. Bonner’s players also made strides off the court. Ettenhofer, the president of YSU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, was named Second-Team Academic All-America, becoming just the second YSU volleyball player to accomplish that feat. Bonner came to YSU after spending two seasons as the top assistant coach at the University of Dayton. He helped the Flyers to a two-year mark of 4916 and two straight trips to the NCAA Tournament. While at Dayton, Bonner worked primarily with the middle hitters and blockers. In addition to his on-court duties, he was responsible for team travel, game operations and assisting with recruiting. Prior to Dayton, Bonner spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Robert Morris where he helped the Colonials to three consecutive Northeast Conference titles and three straight NCAA Tournaments. Under his guidance, four middle hitters received all-conference honors and one earned NEC Player-of-the-Year accolades for two consecutive years. Outside of the college realm, Bonner also has four years of collegiate club volleyball coaching experience. A 1997 graduate of Frostburg State University, Bonner’s club team made two national tournament appearances, as well as three years of USAV competition. A native of Huntingtown, Md., Bonner received a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from Frostburg State. Joe and his wife, Kelly, who was a four-year volleyball letterwinner at Mars Hills College, reside in Austintown, Ohio.

COACHING STAFF

D A RCY TH O M PSO N Assistant Coach | First Year | Robert Morris, 2005 Joining the Youngstown State volleyball program in 2008 is first-year assistant coach Darcy Thompson. Last season, Thompson helped guide the Villanova Wildcats to a 17-12 overall record and a 9-5 mark in the Big East. She also coached Villanova’s first AVCA Honorable Mention AllAmerican Alona Cherkez. Prior to joining the Villanova staff, Thompson spent the 2006 season as a volunteer assistant at the University of Dayton. During her season at UD, the Flyers posted a 22-11 record for the season and advanced to the championship match of the Atlantic 10 Tournament. In addition, Faye Barhorst earned honorable mention All-America honors from the AVCA and Amanda Robbe was cited for her academic success on the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Prior to joining the Dayton staff, Thompson was a standout player at Robert Morris University before spending the

„ While YSU sits just blocks from downtown Youngstown, the campus core has an intimate feeling with plenty of green space and a mix of historic and modern buildings. Your Success is Our Story You have a story. Everyone does. It’s about where you come from, what you think about, what you value. It’s about your friends, your family, your language, your music, your school. It’s about your particular skills and interests, what you’ve learned so far in life, how you relate to the world and other people. Right now, you’re about to start a whole new chapter in your story. In the book called My Life—by you, of course—the theme of this chapter is “Where do I want to go, and who do I want to become?” You have options you want to explore, places you want to see, things you want to do, ideas you want to propose, a career you want to pursue. That’s one reason you’re planning to go to college—to get going on that next chapter of your life, to become who you want to be. Colleges and universities have stories, too. How they started, what traditions they maintain, the way they look, the students they serve, the things they offer academically and socially, the role they play in their communities, and the role they play in the generation of new knowledge. Youngstown State University’s story is all those things. YSU is about outstanding academic quality, diversity of people and programs, and broad access to opportunity.

„ University President Dr. David C. Sweet and his wife, Pat, are avid fans of Penguins athletics.

When David C. Sweet became Youngstown State University’s sixth president in July 2000, he mapped out a course that included three priorities: enrollment, partnerships and diversity. In the eight years since, the University has made great strides in all three areas. Enrollment has jumped nearly 15 percent since fall 2000 and is now at its highest level in 13 years. Over the last eight years, the number of minority students has increased more than 60 percent. And the University has initiated partnerships with the city of Youngstown, the Youngstown city and other school districts and community groups to meet the needs of the region. The University has also expanded academic programs at the associate, baccalaureate and graduate levels, including a new doctor of physical therapy degree. In partnership with the Youngstown city schools, the University opened Youngstown Early College, a high school on the YSU campus aimed at helping city school students earn college credit and a high school degree at the same time. YEC’s first class graduated in May. Last year, YSU reorganized its academic structure to better address the growing importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the state and national levels. As a result, two new colleges were created: the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. YSU has worked in collaboration with the City of Youngstown to complete a nationallyrecognized urban development plan,

Youngstown 2010. In addition, the University has been a leader in the development of Wick Neighbors, a non-profit community organization that is spearheading a major redevelopment project in the Wick District and Smoky Hollow neighborhood. Since 2000, the University has opened the $22 million University Courtyard Apartments and the $12.1 million Andrews Student Recreation and Wellness Center. The campus is now in the midst of a $44 million Centennial Capital Campaign, the largest fund-raising effort in YSU’s history. A centerpiece of the campaign is a new $34.3 million building for the Williamson College of Business Administration. Prior to coming to YSU, Dr. Sweet was dean and professor of the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State from 1978 to 2000. His leadership resulted in national recognition for the college’s graduate studies and its city management/urban policy program. Prior to joining Cleveland State, Dr. Sweet held a number of state cabinet posts, including the director of the State Department of Development. He also served as commissioner of the Ohio Public Utilities Commission and head of the state’s first energy agency. Prior to state service, he was director of regional economic research at the Battelle Institute in Columbus. He previously served as the chairman of the Northeast-Midwest Institute, a Washington, D.C. policy research institute, and president of the American Economic Development Council.

„ Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Ron Strollo (right) joined Paul McFadden from University Development and major donor Tony Lariccia in saluting Hall of Fame Coach Dom Rosselli (third from left) at a 2007 football game.

Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Ron Strollo, a former Penguin student-athlete, has worked diligently to ensure that today’s student-athletes have the support system in place to succeed not only at Youngstown State, but also in their future. Now in his eighth year as Athletics Director and 13th as a member of the department, his vision for successful broadbased programs and providing student-athletes tools to succeed on and off the playing fields is coming to fruition. Strollo has concentrated his priorities on facility improvements; full compliance of NCAA regulations; fiscal management and budgetary maintenance; streamlining department organization; increasing visibility and fundraising efforts of the Penguin Club; and enhancing the overall experience and competitiveness of student-athletes and programs. Under Strollo’s leadership, Youngstown State earned full NCAA certification in 2007. This review of governance and commitment to rules, academic integrity, and equity and student-athlete well-being showed YSU athletics operates in substantial conformity with the operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership. During his tenure, Strollo has placed a priority

Elaine Jacobs Associate A.D./SWA

on the construction and enhancements of athletic venues. Currently, he is leading a capital campaign to construct the Watson and Tressel Training Site, a $4-6 million indoor athletic practice facility. The Beeghly Center has undergone more than $3 million in renovations. In the past year, a new Dom Rosselli Court was installed and a weight room was built for the men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and swimming and diving programs. Within the past year in Stambaugh Stadium, office space in the athletic marketing and ticket offices and football suite received an enhancement, and the weight room and athletic training offices were renovated. Other recent upgrades include a concourse-level elevator (2005), a scoreboard and a Mitsubishi DiamondVision videoboard (2004) and a state-of-the-art SprinTurf playing surface (2002). He has also secured agreements for Eastwood Field, the home of the Cleveland Indians’ Class-A affiliate, and Cene Park to be the baseball team’s home fields and McCune Park to serve as the softball team’s home venue. Thanks to the benevolence of the Andrews Trust and the priority Strollo places on academics, the academic counseling center underwent a significant renovation and expansion in his first year and continues to receive technology upgrades. In the past seven years, the department, which has been recognized as a national leader for its graduation rates, has had many successes on and off the playing field. More than half of the current 300-plus studentathletes have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher while 11 teams have an overall GPA of at least 3.0. YSU’s Academic Progress Rate is well

Rick Love Associate A.D.

above the national average for public institutions, and its 93 percent graduation rate is at an all-time high. Ten student-athletes have captured Academic All-America accolades while a total of 41 have been named to Academic All-District teams. YSU has won 11 Horizon League titles, and it won back-to-back Gateway Football Conference (now the Missouri Valley Football Conference) championships in 2005 and 2006 in Strollo’s tenure. In Strollo’s role as the Executive Director of the Penguin Club, the organization has increased athletic endowed scholarship contributions annually. Annual events keep improving every year, and the growth of the Football Alumni Club has had a positive impact on the department. Strollo returned to his alma mater in 1996 as athletic business manager. In March 2000, he was named the school’s Associate Executive Director of Athletics. In his short time in that capacity, he helped spearhead the transition into the Horizon League. He has strong ties to the local community and to the athletic department. He grew up in nearby Austintown and attended Fitch High School. He played football for YSU from 1988 through 1991 for Coach Jim Tressel and was named captain of the first Division I-AA National Championship team in 1991. He earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Youngstown State in June, 1993. Ron and his wife, Nicole, reside in Austintown with their two children, Ryan and Rachel. Nicole is a former YSU student-athlete who competed in track and cross country from 1989 through 1993.

„ Youngstown State University is the only Division I university in the country with a Penguin for a mascot and the nickname Penguins for their athletic teams.

Penguin Nickname Legend Prior to 1933, Youngstown College had been referred to as "Y" College, YoCo, Wye Collegians and many times, simply the "Locals." There are two accounts of how the Pe Penguin enguin nickna nickname n mee ccame amee to be, aand am nd iinterestingly nter nt erees es ng esting ngly enough enoug no ou h they theey th come from the same evening on Jan. 30, 1933. But throughout the season prior to that contest, many of YSU Alma Mater the members of the 1932-33 varsity men’s basketball All hail to thee O Youngstown, team and their friends on campus spent idle moments Our Alma Mater fair; in the cafeteria discussing suitable new names for our In sunlight and starshine school sports combines, basketball, and fencing that We see thee in all thy glory. year. The names considered covered every conceivable The Red and White, thy glorious colors, spectrum of animals, birds, and things associated Ever we praise and hold them with the steel city, but none seemed to fit. There was High to the breeze as the symbol of our always someone who pointed out an inadequacy of Most loyal allegiance. This anthem, O Youngstown, some sort. The first account states that on a cold, freezing Our pledge of trust shall be night at a men’s basketball game at West Liberty State That thy sons and daughters Teachers College, in West Liberty, W. Va., a spectator Shall keep faith with thee forever watching the members of the team stomp on the floor and swing their arms made them look like Penguins YSU’s Fight Song and without a nickname, the fans took a liking to the The Red and White are waving word. The second account comes from the trip to West Over the field Liberty in which the road that evening had been hit Our teams are fighting by a snowfall between one and two feet deep. The With a spirit that will not yield passengers in two of the cars found it necessary Rah-Rah-Rah on several occasions to get out and help push their Hail to thee O’Youngstown vehicles out of snow drifts or road area with snow We’ll fight for you Once again the Penguins ruts, difficult to drive through. During the trip, Bennett Kunicki recalls, the Will win for YSU discussion of a nickname for the school was the hot topic of conversation. In Kunicki’s car, the name Penguins came up and was well received by everyone in the car. Upon arrival at the West Liberty gym, the name was mentioned to the members of the team, who thought it was perfect. By the end of that school year, the nickname was unanimously accepted by the student body without the necessity of a formal polling vote. Plans were then made to introduce the new name during the 1933-34 basketball season. The nickname Penguins was formally introduced to the school in the "Jambar" (Vol. IV, No. 3) at the beginning of the 1933-34 basketball season. Page three of that issue was set up to cover YSU’s first game to introduce the members of that season’s team and to give the schedule for the season. The date of the "Jambar" issue was Dec. 15, 1933. Within the next five or six weeks, Penguins became our newly accepted nickname both in the Jambar and on the sports pages of the then two local newspapers. The name was introduced after the first game with Slippery Rock in the Dec. 15, 1933 issue of the "Jambar". The Youngstown Telegram first used the nickname in a headline on Dec. 29, 1933 while The Vindicator first acknowledged the nickname in its Jan. 27, 1934 edition.

Pete and Penny Penguin are the beloved mascots of Youngstown State University and represent YSU and the Athletic Department at home and road games, community functions and special events throughout the region.


„ As seen from the roof of Stambaugh Stadium, the Youngstown State campus is well within walking distance of a revitalized downtown Youngstown.

Quick Facts Population: 83,906 Area: 34.2 square miles Metropolitan: 586,939

Attractions • More than 50 area golf courses • The 2,537 acre Mill Creek Park situated within miles of downtown • Two large malls and shopping districts within 20 minutes of campus • Minor league hockey and arena football franchises downtown and a nearby minor league baseball team • Several museums and auditoriums

The City of Youngstown was incorporated in 1867 and named for John Young, who purchased approximately 15,000 acres (the entire township) for slightly more than $16,000 in 1797 from the United States Government. With its setting in the Mahoning Valley along the Mahoning River, Youngstown quickly grew to become a thriving city in the 1920s as part of the industrial belt that stretched from Massachusetts to the Mississippi River. The iron and steel industry created a strong blue-collar work ethic in the city and surrounding areas that is still very evident, even decades after the closing of the mills.
