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!
Overall, I think YCP is a great college. The class sizes are fairly small,making one-on-one help from your professors available. In all the classes I have had, the professors are always willing to help and I feel that I have truly learned a great deal since I have been here. There are always activities going on and plenty of clubs. My biggest complaint is that the college definitely caters to their resident students. The activities and club meetings are usually at night or on weekends, which are inconvenient as a commuter student. There are plenty of job opportunities on campus and internships available. My other major complaint about the school is that they don't have many scholarships and financial aid options available, making it difficult to afford an already pricey school.
Great academics. Student life seems a bit lacking, though. Even though the surrounding neighborhood isn’t that safe, campus is well protected by campus safety. Freshman dorms are really small. Professors seem to really care about you and want you to succeed. Gym is on West Campus so it’s a bit of a walk, especially in the cold. Just got a Starbucks on campus, so that’s super exciting. There is a wide variety of class options and study spaces. Food from the dining halls are okay, but I prefer Spart’s Den.
