3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You definitely meet some interesting people from different parts of the east coast and I can see myself having long time friends from the friendships I made here. If I went to a bigger school I believe I wouldn't have made such close friend friendships. This school isn't for everyone because it is smaller than others, but not so small as to the point where nothing is going on. The people on campus deffinitely tries to make everyone have a good time.

4 College Junior

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I had a great time at school. Although my major is very difficult and time consuming one of my best decisions was to still go to the gym everyday and to continue playing soccer through the intermural league. If I could do it all over I wish I would have put some more effort into soccer and play for the schools team freshman year before school got too hard. I met some awesome life long friends already so far at my school and I look forward to what the rest of my college years hold for me.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: York College of PA is in a diverse location with a diverse student body. However, joining Greek life at the school is what has made my experience so memorable and in doing this, I am so glad to be a York College Spartan. I have found a home away from home at this college and in my sorority. Also, both have taught me an immense amount of leadership and professionalism skills, which is what most employers look for and I can happily say I have thanks to attending YCP.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I didn't have any problems. My first year was fairly easy and every teacher I had tried their best to help all of us (students) and offered help whenever they could.

Off-Campus Housing: Trying to get off campus housing a hassel. They do not let you know whether you are approved and some people have to wait until the summer to find out. It is rediculous! It is like they have no method.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I do not usually go to parties but I have been to some on Jackson street and they have been okay. York is not a huge party school

Off-Campus Dining: They have a very good pizza place called Parmas and they have many student discounts. They also have a good chinese place near by called Lin's Garden which is amazing. They also have a Rutter's near by which everyone walks to to get food late at night

2 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Campus safety is extremely strict and it is like you can not do anything fun like even make noises without them coming to get you.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Meal plans are extremely expensive and if you stay in a building without a kitchen you are required to get the biggest meal plan even if you don't need it. The west campus dining hall is much better than main campus. The best place to eat is spart's den and pura vida

Scholarships: I filled out the Fafsa and that is how I got all of my financial aid

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The freshmen dorms are a little outdated but they are redoing them soon. The apartments are all very nice however they are extremely hot because there is no ac. They just redesigned the dining hall to make it better. The cost is a lot cheaper than most normal private colleges. The one bad thing is campus safety is extremely strict and they will get you in trouble for everything and will find any reason to give you parking tickets

3 College Sophomore

Administration: in the dorms, its pretty much up to what kind of RA you get. i was lucky and my RA was not really around so we could get away with more things but the RA above and below us usually found some way to intervene

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: they have a great dining staff from the community that do well in preparing good food. it is a lot better than i thought it would have been. sparts is a little expensive but you get a discount if you use dining points

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: everybody that attends get at least the base scholarship. based on sat and gpa from highschool you can get anywhere from 2-12 thousand dollars of aid a year, which is really good because total cost of attendance is about $28,000

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: york is great. as long as you are open minded there is a lot to do contrary to what everyone else says. greek life is also an amazing experience that gives you even more to do. food is excellent, housing gets better, and security is maybe a little too intense but i would rather that than no security at all.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Once again, I am a commuter so I have only been to the dining halls and cafe's a few times but the few times I went they were nice.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greeks are pretty prevalent on campus and you can see them just about everywhere.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many people attend the athletic events on campus, but if you're an athlete, you are respected by the student body at York.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: York doesn't want its student to pursue off campus housing. It became a prevalent issue this year in the housing lottery system because Res. Life didn't approve anyone to life off campus but couldn't provide housing for all of the residents.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are usually quite a few parties going on Thursday ,Friday ,and Saturday nights. They are right on Jackson Street and are within walking distance from campus. The cops are usually pretty good about not busting parties if they don't get too loud but it does happen from time to time.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus Safety is notorious for giving out parking tickets if you're in the wrong spot for even five minutes, but as long as you follow the rules for parking you would be fine. In the freshman dorms, it is pretty easy to get cited for underage drinking and noise if you're not careful.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: York is an extremely affordable school. I received a substantial scholarship and I think that what I am paying for my education is pretty reasonable.
