What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
York College of Pennsylvania is a wonderful small college. Classes are taught by professors who truly care about their students, in small settings. The people at YCP are always friendly.
Christine from Parkville, MD
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.
