4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have opportunities to go and participate internships with people. We have employers come up sometimes and recruit people to come work or even give us advice on what to do .

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The way the professor talk to you in class they want you to do very well. They clearly tell you want they want and how they want it , so you don't fail anything.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's been a great experience here. YHC has become my home away from home. The professors have cared about my progress in class and they see me as who I am and not as a number.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Had a few things happen but it's been okay

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My specific major is unique considering it is Media Communication. There are so many great professors and classes for my major that I am not worried about the future at all.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Young Harris College has been such a blessing in my life. I love everything about this school like: hiking, hammocking, reliable teachers, reasonable course loads, and school spirit.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I'm frustrated with the lack of interest the advisors seem to have as well as their unwillingness to spend the time to offer me help when I specifically ask for it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, allowing for professors to really get to know their students and help them succeed. Because it's a small school, classes often fill up very quickly, making registration extremely stressful and uncertain; some classes are only offered for one time period a week, and it is difficult to fill my schedule with classes I need for my major. However, most classes are oriented as a conversation based style, so students are able to talk freely and in a more comfortable manner than if they had to raise their hands formally.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love how the professors have an interest in who you are as a person, not a number. Professors are often willing to drop everything to help students, and if not they're willing to work around their schedules. Classes are challenging and professors do not allow for too much "wiggle room," making students respect them.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a good starting out school. I liked the first two years, but now I want something bigger with more opportunity and more of an outside community.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't taken an online course, and personally I don't want to. I like one on one teaching methods where I can interact and ask questions to keep me engaged.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: As far as transfer credits, I took AP classes in high school and anything I made over a 4 on the exam transferred over. Making class schedules is hard as a freshman and sophmore because everyone else registers before you but you still get into classes that you need to graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't know anything about this because I haven't looked into it. However, I know a lot of students end up going to grad school and a lot of students end up going to UGA for grad school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: With any college there are going to be a few professors that aren't that great but overall all of the professors are super friendly and are willing to help. They are very educated in their field of study and know how to get really big concepts into smaller ones that are easier to understand. There are a lot of different courses at YHC and it's easy to change majors or minors to find something that fits you best. Classes are usually fairly small; my current spanish class has 4 students in it but then I also have a class that has about 30 students in it. The general education tends to have more students in it but as you get further along in your major the class sizes get smaller.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't know much about internships or jobs off of campus, but it is really easy to get a job on campus. There are a lot of different job opportunities on and off of campus, and most jobs are willing to work around a student's hetic schedule.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've mainly only taken general education classes but the few classes that I have taken in my major, business management, I have loved so far. I've especailly enjoyed accounting with Professor Rismiller because you learn so much from him and he understands the everyday problems that students face and is really understanding. Currently I am in microeconomics with Professor Buser and I already love her class, she's smart and funny and overall is a really great teacher.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Young Harris College for multiple different reasons: the campus, the professors and classes, and the activities. The campus is absolutely gorgegous and it is what made me fall in love with Young Harris. No matter what season it is there is always something to do on campus and the views are amazing. Also, all of the teachers are super friendly and care about you and your personal goals and education; they are willing to help you anytime. Lastly, there is always something happening on campus; we have movie nights, game nights, dance, etc. Plus there are plenty of job opportunities on and around campus.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Even though college is difficult, everything is still manageable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and my professors have designated office hours. They are literally waiting for students to come visit them. They respond readily to emails, and are very welcoming of drop-in visits. Also, if their office hours are during a students' classes then they will work with the student, which is awesome!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The trustees are actively involved with the school (two of their children are students on campus). The alumni that I have had contact with have been very involved in on-campus activities. They also give an enormous amount of financial support to the school. There are a lot of people who believe in this school, which can be seen in their superior reputation with Georgia employers. There are many many networking opportunities to take advantage of, but I am not sure about employers recruiting on campus. I know that it may take place, but I have not researched this aspect of the student resources yet.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am not a declared psychology major yet. However, with my VAST arsenal of one full semester of classes to pull from I must say that young harris expects a lot from their students. Every class seems to have a decently heavy workload (this feels like the general consensus, but it may not be fully true).

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

YHC is a vibrant and unique but small community. The faculty and staff work together to help the students the best that they can. Teachers look out for the students and know them by name, and they ususally go the extra mile. Academic advisers also help students out and take the time to really find the best courses. The teachers and students feel like a family.

The student body itself is mostly friendly and positive. Many of them are excellent students, and the marjority of them are involved in extracurriculars, such as sororities and fraternities, clubs, religious life, and other organizations. These organizations host events like dances, casino night, live concerts, and many more. The events make the atmosphere more interesting and fun. Indviduals meet others with similar and different viewpoints and often find friends in both. Students often find life-long friends. Together, the teachers and students make the school feel like home.
