WHAT I LIKED

The benefits of a small college like Young Harris make your academic life easier. In my time here I have had moments where I struggle academically, but I have created such amazing relationships with my professors that asking them for help is a regular thing for many students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only downside I would say is if you don't have a car it is more difficult to find things to do on the weekends. Luckily, we have organizations on campus that help those who stay here on their off days.

WHAT I LIKED

What I loved about YHC is its small campus. It's not too small but not too big with its average of about 1400 students, I believe. Because of the campus size, it makes for a more personal, liberal arts education experience. You get more attention in the classroom and are not often overlooked in grades or campus advisement. Tuition is intimidating, but the Financial Aid Office is more accommodating than most other private colleges and has an abundance of scholarships to offer for all kinds of students, as well as an awesome student work-study program. Being a fine arts major, most of my time was spent in the Theatre buildings. The program is small, but selective, creating a well-rounded education in not only musical theatre but in other theatre skills like stagecraft and design. Greek life is plentiful, if that is something you desire, and makes up most of the campus student-life. Probably the best part about YHC is its location. It's called the Enchanted Valley for its location in the center of the beautiful, mountainous valley of North Georgia and Young Harris. Snowy winters, blooming springs, and memories made for a lifetime are what make YHC the place to be.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Only because of the size, sometimes the social pool can feel even smaller. Greek-life issues are the majority of issues, and can sometimes change policies for the entire student body depending on the mistakes made within those organizations. Young Harris College is not as diverse as other larger schools, but it varies on the year and that year's overall acceptance rate of diverse students.
