YHC Bucket List

The Division of Student Development recently asked the campus community, “What experiences should every student have while at YHC?” The result is the introduction of the
 “YHC Bucket List” featuring the top 100 things all Young Harris College students should do before graduation.

Have an idea you think should be added to the list? Contact Associate Vice President for Student Development Dr. Bryan Hayse and see if your suggestion makes the list!
