"York College provided me with a solid foundation to grow my professional skills and also allowed me to explore multiple subjects that allowed me to develop a diverse, well-rounded skill set. The small class sizes and ability to engage in one-on-one instruction with professors enabled me to deeply explore multiple areas of interest. This has allowed me to excel in my career."
