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.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the dining halls leave a lot to be desired. The food options are quite limited and don't often taste good. There are a few good meals that I make a point to eat in the dining hall but they are few and far between. West Campus Dining hall is better than main by a longshot and the other dining options like Sparts Den and Pura Vida are excellent. However, if you don't have dining points, they can be very expensive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, the residence experience at York isn't bad and has many great qualities. Living in a typical corridor style dorm for the first year allows you to meet a lot of people everyday. The only negative things I have to say are that the freshman dorms themselves could use some renovating, particularly the bathrooms and that dealing with Res. Life and the housing process is a nightmare.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: lots of things are undercooked, and not enough options other than the dining halls

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everyone who lives on my floor is relatively nice but the cleanliness is not very good. The cleaning lady doesnt do much

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Great security measures on campus. Parties are kind of an iffy situation; there have been a few instances of female participants being roofied, but not assaulted. Unfortunately, most parties are off campus and hard to patrol. Don't even THINK about going into York city. You'll get mugged. Never leave campus. Ever. It is home. Campus is love. Campus is life.

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't a lot of places that are close and diverse. Mostly Domino's, Papa John's, and Lin's Garden; they're pretty popular on campus and delicious. They also deliver, which is great for students who don't have cars.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I like strictness. You're here to learn, not get drunk and party every night. Campo is really nice and helpful if you aren't a total piece of crap to them. The attendance policy (usually 3 freebies but then you need notes) is a nice touch, sort of a motivator for students to actually go to class, considering they can lose points or get kicked out of the school for just ditching class like prepubescent idiots.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Hey, it's better than I get at home. Much more variety than I'm used to, warming soups and make-it-yourself sandwiches, fresh baked pizza, Sparts Den burritos are the BOMB! I love it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like it :) It's comfortable, though the noise rules in my manor aren't enforced, which is annoying. The dorms are much bigger than I expected, which is a plus, and the windows are lovely, with just enough room for my copious amounts of plants!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would choose my school again. It has a strong CS program and is the right distance for home. It has given me a different outlook on life and I have met a variety of nice people around the east coast.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The first semester they choose classes for you, but you can email the regisrar to change it if you do not like your set up DO IT. After all, you are paying for your classes. They have TONS of courses available and you must go outside your degree with ADRs I would recommend making sure your electives fit the ADR's but if not you have 12 free credits if they dont. Class sizes are between 10-50 people, and it is a great learning enviorment.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am from Virginia and since the college is accredited you can use it to apply for jobs. Also, about 1/2 of the jobs I know prior knows the college. The York county has great knowledge of the school so it will be better in PA.

5 College Freshman

Majors: You can choose the CS program very easily I do not believe there are any requirements outside of getting accepted in the college and declaring.

3 College Freshman

Majors: They have some interneships offered. I have not had one because they are limited to juniors and seniors.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers in the Computer Science major are great and have thier own unique areas of interest. I feel like the college does a great job at preparing you and liberal arts degrees are becoming more popular. The only thing I do not like is they dont have many classes that were skipped due to my highschool credits and I have to take three intro to programming before getting to do any electives.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i like going off campus to eat. there are lots of choices

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus security is strict but easy to fallow
