YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – In preparation for the 2021-2022 academic year at Young Harris College, new and returning students will begin moving in Monday, August 9. Based on their class year, students will continue moving in through Sunday, August 15. The first day of classes for the new academic year is Monday, August 16.

When students arrive on campus, they will be directed to a tent located at the edge of the Plaza. From there, they will receive instructions regarding which route to take to their assigned residence halls and rooms. Each student will also receive a personalized packet of move-in information.

Once students arrive at their assigned residence hall, YHC’s Mountain Lion Movers will help them unload and take their belongings to their assigned rooms. Students will then have the opportunity to visit the Rollins Campus Center (RCC) to complete unfinished move-in business. YHC representatives will be available in the RCC and throughout campus to assist with move-in directions and logistics, as well as to answer students’ questions.

Mark Jestel, the College’s new Director of Residence Life, is leading the team responsible for student move-in logistics. The team is staggering student check-in times to ease the flow of traffic both on campus and in the community, but community members may experience some delay.

Between full-time residential students and commuting students from the surrounding areas, YHC expects approximately 1,000 students for the upcoming year. The College’s dual-enrollment opportunities typically serve about 400 more high school students in Georgia, bringing YHC’s annual enrollment to approximately 1,400.
