York College of Pennsylvania Reviews
York College is very open and inviting. They want you to achieve your dreams and goals, and they will do anything to help you get there. The only thing I would like to see change is the amount of paperwork and deadlines there are for transferring students. Being one of those students, it was a bit stressful to try and meet all deadlines without any help from the people who worked there. Overall, everything else is great!
York College has helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly professors equipped with real life experience. After 3 years in the workforce, I've been able to apply the knowledge and experiences I had at YCP in the real world. I highly recommend this school!
While applying for a multitude of colleges, York College of Pennsylvania (YCP) was an easy choice. The campus is beautiful. The professors are accessible and knowledgeable. Most importantly, you feel safe on campus as you receive a first rate education. I was fortunate enough to attend and complete a Bachelors in Arts. No class that I ever attended, whether in my major or not, was over 30 people. This creates an atmosphere that promotes healthy discussions between students and professors. This is essential as too big a class can limit students from accessing their professors directly.
