4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors will help and guide you but also make sure you do the work by yourself. It is important to understand that you have to do the work in order to succeed.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My classes are challenging enough for me to learn new things, but not too difficult. The workload hasn't been bad at all so far - probably just the right amount of work. Facilities are great. There are plenty of resources to help students find internships and job opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: (Most) of the professors are incredible people who genuinely care.

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.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

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.
