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.
I am a 1989 graduate of YCP. My college advisor was a mentor for me as I grew up at college. She guided me to where I needed to be. I stayed in contact with her a couple years after I graduated through an intern from York College that I supervised. My former advisor came by my work place to see how the intern student was doing as well as how I was progressing in my field of study.
My experience at YCP was a positive one that I introduced York to my daughter as she started to look at colleges. My
daughter also decided to attend York College and is now in her second semester of her sophomore year. She has embraced YCP by being part of the theater program, being a RA, & also the campus activities board.
York College has been a wonderful experience for myself as well as my daughter. I highly recommend York College of PA to anyone who is looking for a small college with a family cohesive experience.
