Young Harris College Reviews
I am a former dual-enrolled student at Young Harris. Their staff, professors, etc are absolutely amazing! Everyone has their best interest in the students.
Attending Young Harris College was one of the best decisions that I made. Young Harris is a very small private school, which was a big issue for some students there. The school had about 1,500 students. There was not a whole lot to do in Young Harris unless you really liked being outdoors so you had to get creative, but for me that made the experience that much better. I liked that it was such a small school. Professors were always ready to help and you were able to get one-on-one time if you were struggling in a class something you might not get with a bigger school. There was a strong sense of community at Young Harris and you really do become like family. I never walk somewhere without seeing a friendly face. One of the biggest downfalls of Young Harris is it on the expensive side, which I wish could be changed.
Young Harris was my top choice college and as a freshman I loved it but things went downhill following budget cuts and an entire group of new faculty/staff who came with the new dean. The new faculty and staff members have changed many things that should not have been changed. None of my experiences with trying to get things changed for the good of the rest of the students has even been considered. Despite all of the things I hate there are some genuinely sweet people there, especially in the dining hall, and the campus is beautiful.
