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!
Review Your College
After almost four years at YCP, I feel like I've had the opportunity to be a part of many diverse facets of the campus. Coming in to the school playing lacrosse and balancing life as a student-athlete, to being a co-op student through the engineering program working throughout the US, to living off campus and being an active member of a sorority. I believe the biggest downside to YCP is it's housing policy. Hundreds of students run into problems every year when it comes to approval for off-campus housing, as leases must be signed before approval is offered, and then there comes to be some legal issues involved with local realtors. The policy limits many students from experiencing off-campus life, which at many schools proves to be a great experience for independence and learning to pay rent and utilities. Overall, I felt like my major and many campus experiences made my experience at YCP a positive one, but some of the policies this school has need amending.
Absolutely wonderful college. I love the class sizes, the faculty and staff, and the stunning campus. I would definitely recommend coming here!
