What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
The staff is very open minded, and willing to help in anyway they can. I have never felt more comfortable in a class setting than I do at York. The campus overall is just beautiful: the scenery and the fountain in the middle of the campus really adds on to its beauty
Delani from Edison, NJ
It is a reasonably priced privite school. It has many opportunties to have fun, advance your career, and knowledge while attending. I would reccomend this school to anyone looking for a degree in science.
Parker from Waldorf, MD
My favorite thing about York College is how it provides a personalized education with its smaller class sizes - and also tons of hands-on learning experiences. Because there are over a hundred clubs and organizations to get involved in, it's really easy to meet friends and stay busy. A great learning environment, friendly community, and an involved campus, all come together to give me a really awesome home away from home!
Dalida from Carlisle, PA
York has a great faculty filled with great professors. The academics have been very rewarding so far. I cannot wait to get into more classes to deepen my knowledge.
Brianna from National Park, NJ
York College is the perfect mix of having a small enough population that you will see familiar faces and feel like you are a part of the community, but a large enough population that there are always new people to meet. I believe my decision to attend York College has been vital to my successes during my freshman year of college. York is my second home.
