What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Definitely visit open houses or special program-specific days before you commit! There's a ton of fun stuff they do on these days, but you also get to see the beautiful campus yourself and meet future professors and classmates. Applying early is generally a better idea too.
Dalida from Carlisle, PA
Work hard. The school is in a great place with great people. Take advantage of it.
Brianna from National Park, NJ
College is what you make of it. If you join clubs, teams, organizations, etc., and get involved, you will meet tons of people and have great experiences. Don't be afraid to pursue the things that interest you. College is much different from high school in that, people appreciate diversity and originality; so go out there and do whatever it is that you do best.
Alia from Brinklow, MD
Make sure your work comes first, and you will be just fine. You shouldn't be here if you're not serious.
Ericka from Columbia, PA
Come visit the campus, and ask questions of the students at while on the tour to get a feel of how others feel about the school.
Kaitlyn from Budd Lake, NJ
Join a lot of clubs, you don't even need to go to all the meetings to feel involved. Go to as many sporting events as you can because that's where you can feel all of the school spirit. Don't be afraid to go to the writing center or to get tutoring, studying comes hard to many students and the staff are really helpful and give good techniques to study
Delani from Edison, NJ
Come prepared to make friends! You will be able to jump into a small community where there are chances to meet someone knew everyday. There are plenty of things during orientation that help you to meet people. also the activities on campus including; greek life, campus activties board, residence life staff, help to branch someones personal and professional connections.
Parker from Waldorf, MD
Come visit York! Get to know what is around the city. There are many different things to do here, you just have to find them. My friends and I found a great $2 movie theater. As college students, we don't have much money to go out. This is just one thing that we let other people know about. But the city is nice, other than the bad parts. Yes, there is crime. There's crime in every city. Don't let that deter you. Visit York and see what everything is about!
