I absolutely love this college. The students, teachers, and staff are all amazing and friendly! The small classes make it so much easier to achieve the grades I want. Also, the residence life is well taken care of and feels like home. My pod is my family.
Review Your College
Young Harris is a beautiful school tucked in the mountains. We, Young Harris students, often refer to it to the valley because we are literally tucked away within the mountains. It is a small school which does take away from the college experience a little bit but it also provides a great opportunity to really connect with your peers and even your professors. There is not a "college town" or anything but there are plenty of trails to explore, mountains to hike, and lakes to jump into. If you enjoy out door activities, this school is probably a good fit for you.
Class sizes are small and my professors have designated office hours. They are literally waiting for students to come visit them. They respond readily to emails, and are very welcoming of drop-in visits. Also, if their office hours are during a students' classes then they will work with the student, which is awesome!
