YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. —  Young Harris College looks forward to welcoming students back to campus next week.

Though some student leaders and fall athletes will arrive slightly earlier, the majority of first-year students will move in on Wednesday, August 10. Upperclassmen will move in on Saturday, August 13, and Sunday, August 14, giving freshmen time to get settled and become familiar with campus.

Made up of 22 transfer students, 21 international students from over 15 different countries, and students from 18 states across America, the Class of 2026 is diverse and exciting. Nearly one hundred percent of these freshmen are receiving some form of scholarship or grant, and the average GPA among the class is an impressive 3.51.

Young Harris College is ready to welcome students, both the new and the seasoned, back to the Enchanted Valley for a new school year.
