York College of Pennsylvania Reviews
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.
My experience thus far has been an amazing journey from timidness to confidence, inexperienced to knowledgeable, and unskilled to professional. York College does a great job at preparing you to be an equipped individual who is well-rounded and ready to take on any task. Also, the personal feel here, is second to none. My professors know my name and genuinely care not only about my performance in academics, but also my personal well-being. I would like to see more diversity on campus concerning race and ethnicity. However, each year there is an increase in diversity ratings and it's noticeable.
The main campus is beautiful in the spring and in the winter when it is covered in snow, but when it snows they completely disregard the disabled. They push the snow into the wheelchair ramps outside of the buildings, and some of the buildings are not very accessible. The student union building has the disability bathroom located upstairs down a very narrow bathroom. On weekends the shuttles do not run, so disabled students on North Campus have to walk to main campus to eat, and thats if the dining hall isn't closed on that Saturday because of one of the many Open Houses that they close access to students for. Classes are normally good, and there's normally stuff to do on campus, but accessibility is an issue.
