Best Colleges 2008

For more than a century, York College has continued the “constant effort to lead (students) to the choice and practice of a Christian life, and to the development of a character that makes for righteousness,” The York Republican, November 7, 1894.

Whether a student aspires to be a doctor, financial consultant, music teacher, or preacher, the educational direction he or she receives at York College always points to a better way. If it were only about books, research papers, and diplomas, a school down the street at less cost might seem attractive, but the spiritual foundation that underlies the educational process at York transforms students for a lifetime of service.

Here, we spend countless hours working side by side, enriching and sharpening one another. Our experiences, both in the classroom and out, provide us with an edge by which we become empowered with knowledge, spiritual strength, and the edification of our peers. We don’t reach perfection; we give it a place of honor.

Visit our campus this year as we celebrate our 117th anniversary and see why York College is listed in the third tier of The Best Baccalaureate Colleges in the Midwest by U.S. News and World Report*. I invite you to join us in our pursuit of lifelong learning and eternal values that create something special: “The York Experience.”
