In their own words: What students are saying about York U

0:00
My favorite thing about York is the opportunity it gives you. You truly take education into your own hands.
0:09
You can basically do anything you want with it and take it anywhere you want.
0:12
It's all open to you and you can go as far as you want, and learn as much as you want.
0:17
My professors are really great. They're also working professionals who
0:21
are also in the field so not only are they teaching in the classroom but
0:24
they're also able to bring in practical knowledge from the industry.
0:27
They're welcoming and whenever you have a question or whenever you need help with
0:31
anything you can always walk into their offices and they're always available to
0:35
help you out. You're going to meet the director of sport York here, you're going to meet anybody that you can think of
0:39
that's helping you along your journey. You will meet them face to face and that feels
0:43
great to know they're not just sitting in a high chair, they're here
0:45
supporting our games. Our vice-provost of students is the loudest woman in the
0:49
stands when she's cheering and I absolutely love that. The programs here are
0:52
great. Our coaches are great. Our facilities are great. And I would say the
0:56
student athletes that come to York are also amazing. Every college has access to
1:00
different facilities. There is also the Career Center. There are workshops and you also have
1:04
programs where you can actually meet people within that field. You do sports with your college
1:08
we also offer sessions that help you academically. I belong to Mclaughlin
1:12
College and really it's just a hub for people to help you learn. I'm apparently
1:16
in Founders college, the best college on campus. I chose York because they had a
1:22
great international office but not only that they were close to my family here
1:26
in Canada and when I came to campus it was just beautiful. The international centre
1:31
is amazing. There are really nice people always willing to help. So another benefit
1:36
of our college system is the club's aspects so we'll have clubs in our
1:40
college that pertains with every single major that are students have
1:44
So we have a marketing club, we have an accounting club, finance clubs. There's actually a lot of things
1:47
that you can get involved with. This year I got involved with intramurals. I like the
1:51
leadership opportunities that are
1:52
available on campus because I want to be a teacher so it's great to have those
1:56
experiences that are gonna help me with my job. I like about York, a lot. It's important to
2:00
have a sense of community and especially a scientific community because we're future
2:04
scientists here. In a typical day I spend quite a lot of my time in the residence building.
2:10
It's really close to classes and things like that so I'm in and out a lot but it makes life
2:14
really convenient on campus. My favorite place to eat at York would have to be the Pita Pit. I like
2:20
to be in the library a lot usually five days a week. There's also the red zone which is just
2:25
kind of a common area sometimes there's people playing music there. I love to
2:29
hang out through Stong Pond. It's really really beautiful they have a little
2:33
dock there and it's water and geese. I love York because York supports not just my
2:39
studies but it helps me to find the people that have the same interest and
2:43
we just gather together, learn together, study together and grow together.
