York's Red & White spirit found in the lecture hall and beyond

York University spirit can be found in every corner of the campus including the classroom. On Nov. 14, York University Professors were invited to encourage their students to wear Red & White or York gear to class for a group photograph. Class photos were then submitted to Red & White day organizers for a chance to win coffee service for the entire class.
