Young Harris College Reviews
I love the welcoming feeling you get when you're here! Friendly professors and staff! This school has been a total blessing for my family. I sent applications with lots of schools and this one just felt like home. It has a great learning environment and great School leadership, this is truly a wonderful institution
Young Harris provides and healthy learning environment, with great attention to student success, both academically and socially. The campus community and surrounding community is very active and supportive of the students. However, diversity on campus is minimal. There is little diversity in the student population as well as faculty/staff, and there seems to not be an rush in changing that.
My experience in the last three years have been great for me. I've met some great people and have been given an opportunity to figure out who I am not only as a student but as a person. Although I've always been level-headed, Young Harris gave me a chance to take risk and explore my options. Even though it’s a small campus, the scenery is lovely and it takes my breath away every time I go to class. Young Harris provides every student the leeway to make their own choices for classes that fits their needs and/or requirements and payments for financial aid. Yes, its expensive, but the relationships and the bonds that you make on campus will forever be with you even when you graduate because of the closeness and the late nights that you spend together. There are stressful moments and times that you just want to give up but there are a lot of resources and faculty on campus that've been a constant motivation and support whether we are aware or not.
