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.
