Luckily, York has a lot of great restaurants to choose from. In order to ensure that you choose the right place to eat and leave the restaurant satisfied, here a few places that I recommend:

At a college like York it's easy to get super involved in a million different things at once. While this is great, at the end of the day we are still here to be students.

Growing up, Summer Camp was always the highlight of my summer. Even from the age of 5, I tagged along with my Mom who taught Girl’s Bible Class at Midwest Bible Camp in Brighton, Iowa. People may say there’s nothing special about Southern Iowa, but to me, it was the first place I saw God. I saw Him in grassy hills and pretty sunsets, I heard Him in four part harmony and late night bunk bed whispers, and I felt him in sunburns and sweaty hugs. But most importantly, I experienced God living within the people, especially the camp counselors, who took the time to get to know me, encouraged me, and taught me about Jesus by loving me in a way only a gracious, relentless, and perfect God could inspire.

At the beginning of the school year, York College always holds a week known as “club week”. During this time, you get the opportunity to learn about every social club that has a presence on campus. I didn’t know how big of a role my social club, Sigma Tau, would play into my experience at York College. However, I can now say that it has been one of the biggest contributors to my amazing experience at York.
The biggest thing I love about York College is the fact that you can be as involved as you would like to be. I like to keep busy, so I get involved with a bunch of different activities. This is an example of a general day for me.
The brick roads; the quaint, old houses; the friendly people; the squirrels. It’s the little things that made me fall in love with York, the place I now call home. There are many things I love about York, but the three that stick out to me are the natural beauty of the landscapes, the history laid in the bricks of the town, and the people who live here.
I’m from Colorado, where nature’s beauty kinda screams in your face. You look to the horizon, and boom! There are awe-inspiring mountains. But Nebraska is home to beauty, too
There’s a chilly energy running through the theater. That particular smell of Autumn is sneaking in through the doors that open and close while excited players jitter about before our first run-through. Sitting backstage at the freshly opened Bartholomew Performing Arts Center, the notes from the baby grand echo through the artificial darkness of a black stage.
What a beautiful thing to be a part of! And the beauty of it all is that it comes, and it goes, and then it comes again. The art of theater mirrors life perfectly. Each show brings new excitement and challenges. Every player discovers themselves more as the show progresses. And eventually, the show comes to an end, the art complete, and is put away in a room somewhere, only to be discovered in a new form later.
