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.
Great experience. The atmosphere is phenomenal and would highly recommend this college. The student life is impeccable, professors are extremely helpful and caring about you as well as your grades. The small class sizes help out even more when it comes to learning.
