Year End Wrap Up

York Stomping Grounds

York University has had quite the exciting year. I’d like to take some time to remnice on all the great times that everyone who is a part of the York community has had over the past 8 months.

1. Frosh Week! – our newest students got their first taste of what university was going to be like in an exciting week of parties, events and making new friends.

2. Classes Commence – everyone returns or starts their classes here at York. People rush to buy text books, find their lecture halls and meet their professors.

3. Homecoming Game – although the Lions lost to Ottawa U, alumni and students enjoyed a fun day on campus.

4. Co-curricular days – students enjoy a few days off to catch up on readings, visit family or study for midterms.

5. Red and White Day – everyone dressed in their red and white to show their York Spirit!

6. Exam Period – Students made it through hopefully with great marks to show for it!

7. Start of Semester Two – everyone reunites, starts their new classes or picks up with old ones.

8. The Beggar’s Opera – a pan faculty play involving music, theatre, dance, and digital media is put on to great success.

9. Reading Week! – Students have a week to relax, work on projects and study for midterms.

YU Spirit!

10. Red and White Day round 2 – another day for students to show their spirit, and the first ever aerial photograph for York University!

11. Classes wrap up and exams are taken – students say good bye to friends while finishing up their examinations. Another successful year for the York U Lions!

We’ve had quite the year, as a whole as well as each individual student. Personally I had a rewarding year filled with dance shows, workshops and of course writing these blog posts. Hopefully these were informative and helpful in showing what life at York is like!
