This is a safe and prosperous environment where I am able to receive my higher education but also branch out with new experiences! I appreciate how professors are there for us and want us to succeed. The campus is smaller than UGA, however I have everything that I need in the Enchanted Valley!
I like Young Harris for some of the people! It can be a really grey area on some things, but there’s always a friendly face somewhere. I think the ties you have with people tend to keep you coming back. I want to experience more, but sometimes it is a little small.
I think it's an incredible place. It's right in the "Enchanted Valley" and a tri-state-area (North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee) and it's earned its name. The faculty is kind and always available. Other students enjoy being around each other, and the academics are top knotch.

I wish I had known that it was going to cost as much as it does. Young Harris is a very expensive school. Other than that I am very pleased with Young Harris. It is everything that I need.
My classmates are smart, full of energy, enjoy the outdoors, fun to hang out with, and many of them are my good friends.
Teacher are always available and there is a place for everyone
The food and not anything to do on the weekend.
My school has truly wonderful, friendly, and supportive people, seeks to educate and inspire its students, and has a beautiful campus scenery.
Young Harris College is very well known for its location near the beautiful Appalachian mountains. You will find yourself stepping outside on many occasions and thinking to yourself "this is the most beautiful day of the year", when in reality, you will have several days with seemingly perfect weather. It is difficult to have a bad day at Young Harris College because every time you step outside your thoughts are interrupted by the unrivaled beauty of the mountains, colorful trees, chirping birds, and blue skies.
It has a planetarium.
My school still has a two year junior college mentality. Sometimes the food is not that great.
The type of person who should not attend this school would be anyone who does not like small schools. Young Harris is a very small school. Also, a person who deos not like living away from a big town with many places to hang out and have fun outside of campus should not go to Young Harris.
The school is a wonderful small community and very friendly. I love the family oriented feel that the school offers. I made a lot of new friends and still have lasting relationships with everyone. The campus is very beautiful in each seasons of the year. The school is known as the Encanted Valley.
A person who is laid back and enjoys beautiful scenery and a tight knit environment. Someone who is interested in Young Harris should also be hard working and interested in being involved.
