I am currently enrolled at York College of Pennsylvania and I have to say I love it! The campus is so beautiful and small enough where you can wake up five minutes before class and still make it! My experience here has been nothing but great and it has to do with the kindness of the students, professors and even the workers. Everyone here is so welcoming and makes you feel at home even when you are living away.
Review York College of Pennsylvania
As I conclude my freshman year at York College of Pennsylvania, I can easily say it is a decent college.It offers plenty of opportunities and academic counselling. The faculty and staff are friendly and helpful. Not to mention there are on-campus jobs to help pay for anything you may need.
The main downsides to this college is tuition money does not really go towards the college, but the York County Day School. This leaves us with renovations and improvements that need to be done. Secondly, the area surrounding the college is not all that kosher. There are parties, and potential to be robbed. Though campus safety does a good job at keeping the campus safe. For instance, there is a LiveSafe app that allows students to report various hazards or complaints, but also allows for safe means to move around campus at night.
York College of Pennsylvania is a great school for anyone looking to really succeed. They make it possible to do your best from day one. From professors to counselors and other staff members, they have all of the resources you need to do well in your classes. I went into college feeling very confident and prepared and I ended my freshman year feeling the same. I really do believe that YCP will prepare me for my future goals in the best ways possible!
