YSU students move-in today to housing filled to capacity


As she unloaded boxes from her car Friday, Erin Nadolski of Parma said she was “nervous but excited” to move into her Kilcawley House dorm room and begin her first year at Youngstown State University.

Her 15-year-old brother, Justin, chimed in to say he was sure his older sister would miss him more than anything else while she was away at college.

Nadolski responded with a snort and a laugh.

Nadolski, who will study nursing, is one of about 900 students who will be moving in to housing at Youngstown State University this weekend.

The majority of freshmen moved in Saturday, while the majority of upperclassmen will move in to today.

Olivia Cupp, YSU associate director of housing, said on-campus housing is at maximum capacity this year.

The university enrolls over 12,500 students, according to its website. Eric Bramer, one of 23 students who serves as a resident advisor, said on-campus housing is becoming increasingly popular, as part of the university’s transition from a commuter campus to a residential campus.
