Returning to college is a big decision and an even bigger opportunity. Maybe you are returning because your job has evolved, goals are reorganized, or academic interests have stimulated you to explore higher learning. No matter what your reason is for returning to YSU, one thing is definite: to make the most of this opportunity, you need to navigate through the campus community. At YSU, we strive to create beneficial opportunities and support for student success. One of the first places you can utilize is the Center for Student Progress (CSP). Semester after semester, returning students have found the services of the CSP to provide the support, guidance, and services needed to make the college transition successful. Beginning on your first day of classes, you can benefit from the College Success Place located in Kilcawley West (under the YSU Bookstore)!
To assist you through the journey you are beginning, we have found several texts that provide knowledge, successful tips, and support for students returning to college. Here are a few texts we recommend to assist you during your transition:

- Semones, J.K. (1991). Effective study skills: A step-by-step system for achieving student success. Holt Reinhart and Winston.
