    "As a Physics and Astronomy major at Youngstown State University, I have the opportunity to feed my curiosity with incredible classes and hands-on experiences. I especially love working in our planetarium, which has done more than just give me insight into the night sky - itís expanded my own universe and opened new doors and pathways that have led to unforgettable experiences. I know my undergraduate education at YSU will leave me well-prepared to pursue my PhD in Astrophysics."
