YOUNGSTOWN STATE UNIVERSITY. 410 Wick Avenue, Youngstown, Ohio 44555 (216) 742-3000. The Youngstown Association School was established by the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in Youngstown, Ohio, in about 1888, offering evening classes in the Bushnell Block building at 127 West Federal Street. By 1890 the YMCA needed larger quarters, and a building was constructed at West Federal and Champion streets; it was occupied in 1892. In 1908 a law class was instituted under the leadership of jurist P. Barnum, and by 1910 a full law course was being offered. The bachelor of science in law degree was authorized in 1920. The School of Commerce and Finance was established in 1920; in 1924 the school was authorized to grant the bachelor's degree. Law and business classes were taught by professors from Hiram† and Thielt colleges. The Wick residence was purchased for use of the school; the name was later changed to Bonnell Building. In 1921 the name of the school was changed to Youngstown Institute of Technology, and liberal arts courses were offered in evening classes.
