Youngstown State new president takes office Monday

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Youngstown State University's new president officially takes office Monday and has already moved into the neighborhood.

Randy Dunn and his wife plan to explore the region around Youngstown when they settle into their new home.

The Pollock House built in 1893 was renovated to become the president's residence. According to The (Youngstown) Vindicator (, the $4.5 million project was finished last September.

Since former President Cynthia Anderson, who retired June 30, owned a home, the Dunns will be the first to live in the mansion.

Dunn served as president of Kentucky's Murray State University for six years.

In his first week in office, Dunn plans to make the media rounds, visit summer classes and meet with university vice presidents.
