YSU breaks ground on apartment building

The ground was broken Monday on a new apartment building on the campus of YSU in Youngstown, Ohio.


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown State University is making a big expansion to life on campus with a 162-bed apartment building.

A ground breaking for the project was held Monday at the location of the proposed four-story building on Rayen Avenue.

YSU President Jim Tressel hopes the project is the start of more good things on campus.

“Sometimes you need a little proof, and sometimes you need somethings popping up out of the ground to reinforce the fact that we want to be extraordinary,” Tressel said. “We want this to be a model university town.”

The new apartment building is called University Edge and should be open for the fall 2016 semester.
