Welcome to the new WYSU.org

You may have noticed that WYSU.org looks a little different. That's because we recently updated our website!Why did we update our website? There were two main reasons:

  • The previous site was less flexible and it took a long time to add new features, making it a challenge to keep the content fresh.
  • WYSU wanted to present an image that was more consistent among all media types: print, web, and radio.

There are several new features of the website that might interest you:
