Young Harris College Reviews
Young Harris is a small school with big opportunities for community. There are amazing professors, insightful and caring staff/administration, and a multitude of scholarships specific to the school. 95% of students receive financial aid and/or scholarships! I wish Young Harris's diversity was stronger; however, there is a vibrant campus culture in which anyone can find groups that share their interests, hobbies, beliefs, and skill sets! Students know nearly all of the faculty and staff by name (and visa-versa)!
Young Harris College, located in North Georgia, has a very serene setting. Being in the middle of the mountains gives an isolated experience that brings you closer to interact with your peers. This college has a lot to offer, plus the food here is SPECTACULAR! This school is filled with so much Mountain Lion pride. From sporting events, to clubs, to random activities, YHC has it all!
During the COVID-19 quarantine, Young Harris College acted quickly and efficiently to keep their students from missing any course content. I was able to attend lectures virtually and interact with classmates and the instructors in real time. Not only that, but professors made sure that we were accommodated in our unique situations.
