3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Young Harris just recently converted to being a four year school. As such it still is developing its business courses. I wish there were more classes in accounting and finance but overall am pleased.

Young Harris College strives to have an academically rigorous cirriculum. However, many of the students thrive because the professors help out along the way. Their general knowledge of subjects ranges from fair to excellent. Interactions with professors are usually informal and interesting. Students who struggle are given help. Most professors are very accessible and easy to get in touch with. And if a professor is not, there are many student tutors and other professors willing to help.

Some students do not particularly enjoy the curriculum because it requires so much work. But the majority of the student body finds it refreshing, especially because it's more interesting and challenging than high school and some colleges. The small class sizes also help the learning process. Because students have the opportunity to get to know each other better than they would in a larger class or school. It also fosters better discussions of the material both inside and outside of the classroom.

Testing & Grading Procedures
In most classes, grades are based on three things: participation, quizzes, and tests/papers. Usually a course is either writing-based or information-based. In some classes, a combination of tests and assignments make the final grade, and some are mainly just one major project grade. The workload can be a lot, especially in writing intensive classes.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Parking is very limited, and the school is not clear on the difference between resident and commuter parking.
  • What the area is like
  • Which programs are offered
Tips to Succeed
  • If you're a musical theatre major, have a song and monologue prepared for fall auditions!
  • It is what you make it. You have to get out and be active in the campus life to get all Young Harris has to offer.
  • Just manage your time well, and you'll be fine.
