Yellowstone Studies Center (YSC) Origins

In 2011 with the help of five prestigious professors from around the country, YSCF established the YSC as a facility to provide support services for college and university classes coming to Yellowstone for experiential teaching and learning.

YSC support services include wi-fi, a small and large classroom, kitchen, men’s and women’s indoor camping rooms, 2 small sitting/ lounge areas, and restrooms and showers. More importantly, the YSC facility provides a comfortable, convenient and inexpensive base of operations from which professors and students can be inside the Park in a short time to creatively teach and learn curriculums, share ideas and viewpoints, discuss issues of concern, study, research and experience the wonders of The Greatest Classroom on Earth ℠ -Yellowstone.
