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.
Review Young Harris College
YHC is a wonderful college. The campus is small and beautiful and the staff is dedicated to help you achieve maximum success in all aspects of life. There is a recreation center with health specialists, the dining hall has only large tables to make sure that you make the most of friendships, and there is a huge study center that is open twenty-four hours a day and has three levels with three different rules about talking such as first level: talking permitted, second level: only group study sessions are allowed to talk, and third level: no talking.
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.
