  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The students seem to plan a lot of activities, but it is in a very small town, with not much otherwise to do. Atlanta is only a short distance away, though.

    Almost everyone goes home for the weekend which kinda sucks, it can be boring. Unless you party. If you party then it's great!

  • I am a past student here

    I can absolutely say with 100% certainty that I loved being at Young Harris. I lived on campus with my cross country team mates and other friends. I enjoyed the Greek life and the spiritual life at the college. I spent time on the beautiful campus with wonderful people making beautiful memories that I will always cherish and hold dear to my heart.

    The campus is beautiful, with mountains surrounding it. Also, all the buildings are lovely, and look well. The weather is enjoyable, and there are tons of beautiful flowers and plants all around. It seems there is quite a bit of activities to get involved with as well.
