Students are at the center of their own learning at York College. We offer multiple opportunities for student engagement, inquiry and research-based scholarship, and experiential learning. York maintains a vibrant campus where students actively participate in extra-curricular programs and collaborate with faculty and academic peers whose backgrounds are distinctly different from their own.

The multicultural nature of our sustainable academic and social environments enriches the collegiate experience for all students, faculty and staff.
York College will be a magnetizing institution within the Queens community where students and graduates are mobilized as advocates/participants in continuous civic engagement. Our strong alumni network supports our programs, serves as ambassadors and donates time, talent and capital to advance our mission. Our Continuing and Professional Education function attracts students, graduates, individuals and professionals in pursuit of continued personal and professional development. Our business outreach activities engage the business community to strengthen our town-grown relationships.
The teacher is not that great in conveying her art to the students. She knows her stuff but can’t teach it well. I came away disappointed. I was going to enroll in course 2 when I first started the class but now have changed my mind. In addition, she always came to class late (at least 30 minutes). I felt like I was being ripped off because she still ended class at its regular time. I wish there was more classes out there that could teach you how to braid correctly. Thumbs down on the class. The only positive aspects of the class were the students. We were able to bond together and teach each other whenever we were confused.
I really wanted to attend this class, but it was canceled 4 days before it took place. I hope it comes back soon.
Awful, they cancelled my class 5 days before and didnt let know until 2 days before.
The class was great ,couldn't ask for a better Teacher. l could do it over and over with the same Teacher. Love,love her.
The class was great, lt Could not be better, The Teacher was Excellent ,l would love to do it again.
great professor...thoroughly enjoyed the course. I look forward to part 2.
I mastered the skill of braiding and I can now braid my daughter's hair. The class was very helpful but not long enough. Mores time is needed to master the skill and additional skills as well!
The class was very informative. Wish there were more classes like this.
Our swim class was fantastic! Thanks to Randy and all his assistants, we made leaps and bounds in our progress during swim class II. Randy's calmness, poise and positivity, enabled me to trust him and myself and face my fears with the water! I feel that with swim class III, I'll feel completely confident that I'll learn how to swim without the fear; so I'm looking forward to completing my education around my ability to swim. Thank you once again for providing such a wonderful opportunity for an adult, who otherwise, may not have been able to swim. I'm looking forward to swim class III.
