Young Harris College (YHC) educates, inspires and empowers students to be strong, capable, well-rounded leaders who dare to aspire to goals that others may think unattainable. Founded more than 125 years ago, YHC has been transformed into a progressive model of liberal arts education, featuring innovative academic programs, state-of-the-art facilities and competitive NCAA Division II athletics – which means more learning opportunities, better teaching, a smarter curriculum, greener living, a stronger community and happier students.

Nestled in the southern Appalachian mountains of northeastern Georgia, YHC provides an intimate setting that allows students and faculty to work closely, forging nurturing relationships and strong bonds that endure well past graduation. YHC currently has more than 1,200 students across five divisions – Education, Fine Arts, Humanities, Mathematics and Science, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The historic campus in Young Harris, Georgia, is currently undergoing major improvements to accommodate the College’s growth. Recent LEED-certified campus improvements include a 226-bed residence hall for freshmen, a 57,000-square-foot recreation and fitness center, a 248-bed apartment-style residential village and the 121,000-square-foot Rollins Campus Center – the new social and intellectual heart of campus.
