Many new exciting building projects have recently been completed, including the 200-bed LEED Silver-certified Enotah Hall, the 148-bed apartment-style housing facility The Village, the 57,000-square-foot Recreation and Fitness Center featuring a 1,100 seat basketball arena, the new 12-court, lighted Bob & Gayle Nichols Tennis Complex, and the 121,000-square-foot Rollins Campus Center.
Young Harris, Georgia is located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, ideally situated between the Chattahoochee, Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests, and a scenic two-hour drive from Atlanta, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
In 2011, Young Harris College opened The Village, an apartment-style housing community for upperclassmen. The furnished apartments in The Village are constructed on a rolling terrain with views of the surrounding mountains and campus athletic facilities.
Configured in apartments of four private bedrooms, the complex currently features 148 beds. In fall 2012, another 100 beds in the same configuration will be opened. In addition to four private bedrooms, each apartment includes a living area, kitchen and washer and dryer. The "village" atmosphere is facilitated by expansive porches, designated areas for grilling and abundant green space surrounding the apartments.
The Village is designed and constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards and is expected to earn LEED certification. It is the third new construction project to be completed as part of Young Harris College's strategic plan to make the transformation to four-year status and will be the third to earn LEED certification.
