What Students Are Saying

2.68 Average Rating
For future students I think the best tip would be to study every day. I believe they should rent books from the book store. They should always stay on top of their readings and attend group studies. Also use the library for any papers or projects.

york college is the place for you where you can study and achieve your dreams and aspiration with the help of some great professors that really care that you do succeed in your classes. there are tutoring, counseling and mentoring among others to enhance the physical, psychological and mental growth and well being of each student.

If you want to go to a small college with less students in each classroom, you are more than likely to learn more in the course and your College experience would be so much better. My message to prospective students who want to attend or are thinking about attending York College, you must be on your A game at all times. In college, whether its York or another college there is no time for slacking and you need to learn to study your notes everyday and not just before the exams. Be very attentive at all times in class because you are not there to have fun. The classes are not easy and unlike high school its not free to attend class, buy your books, pay for the tuition, etc. Remember you are not looking to get a 2.0 GPA we go to college to fulfill our dreams of becoming someone that can make a difference in our communities. We begin with a 4.0 GPA and no matter how hard the courses are do try and keep it close to a 4.0 without panicking yourself. Stay calm and don't be too stressed. Taking to many credits a semester may seem like nothing before you take the course but when you take the actual course be aware it will be hard to be on your A game. try to take at least 15 credits a semester and see how it goes. College is a pathway to the real world while your there please make it memorable and remember that your no longer a kid anymore so you need to get your priorities in check before going to college.

Communicate with your professors, most of them are willing to help you out.

There is no room for procrastination. You'll be competing with determined and persistence students who wants their degree and to be acknowledge just as much as you. In other words, slacking is not option.

Along your college journey at York you have your independence, but you are not alone; there is ALWAYS someone there to answer your questions and give you advice when you need it.
