What's your overall opinion of York College?

10 Students rated York College

Madison - 09/06/2019

My overall opinion would be that York College may be a small college that most people overlook but they really shouldn't. Here at York, there are so many people on campus and off of campus that want to help you in any way they possibly can. The love and acceptance you feel when you walk on to campus is unbelievable. More people should consider coming to York, not only for the great teaching but also for the amazing community that cares about each and every student here at York.

Hali - 05/27/2019

When I first walked onto the York College Campus, I was approached by other students. They made me feel right at home on the first day. I am also a part of the Cross Country and Track team. Being a part of this team made me realize that we are not just a team but a family. Not only do you feel a part of a family with your team but with others on campus as well. I had a great first year at York College and I am looking forward to the next school year.

Selwin - 11/30/2018

So far it seems more or less okay, it's quite different from the community college I attended before and im still trying to get accustomed to how the classes here work. Overall it's not so bad, the students seem nice enough and so do the professors.

Rachael - 11/01/2018

I was only visiting as a prospective student, but I absolutely loved it! I plan on attending York this upcoming fall. Everything to me seems perfect. It has my specific major, the professors have made it every clear that their doors are always open to be there for us. The people I have already met are super nice and encouraging and I felt so welcome on campus.

    The kind of person that should not attend this college is someone who is not respectful of their peers and teachers and just don't try in their classes. There is no purpose for someone to be here if they are not willing to try. This college changes lives for sure, but people who attend here have to be willing to accept the diversity, support and love from the peers, friends and teachers that they have here. That is just something to expect when you are here. People will treat you fairly if you do the same thing to them.

    The most frustrating thing is probably that it has a smaller amount of resources available compared to larger schools. It's a great college with amazing professors but we're not as up to date in the technology department as we could be. Also, there isn't really a campus recreation center where students can go to play a pick-up game of basketball, or anything else.

  7. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    My college is know for it's Christ centered education and support for others. Everyone cares for each other and supports when they are down or when they just need someone to talk to. The support is there when you need it. Tutoring for classes comes in handy and is available when you need it. When I visited York College for the first time I realized that this is where I need to be, because things are different than most colleges when it comes to education and support. God put me here for a reason, & I am staying here.

    Before I came to York, I wish I would have known exactly what kind of strain and tension distance adds to any type of relationship.

  9. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    I think the worst thing about York College is the actualy campus facilities. The dorms are outdated, the cafeteria (though updated) is small and others a small variety of food, and the other buildings are all well over 100 years old. I think that the upkeep of campus has been pushed to the background because of recent financial issues at the school, so the students suffer from subpar housing and classroom situations.
