love LIFE STUDENT LIFE AT YORK Our campuses are vibrant and teeming with life. With 65,000 people around, you'll always find someone who shares your interests and something memorable to do. Connect with classmates, join a club or sports team, get involved and you'll build a network that will last long after graduation. COLLEGE COMMUNITY Start by getting active with your college. Each student is affiliated with a college designed to enrich the university experience, with most LA&PS students affiliated with either Founders, McLaughlin, New or Vanier. Get to know the students, professors, Master and College Fellows, and administrative staff in yours. They can be an invaluable source of support and friendship on campus. NETWORK OF SERVICES Once you've connected with other students and your college community, you'll want to take advantage of the many resources York offers. Participate in workshops on exam studying and avoiding procrastination, get one-on-one student advisement, improve your essays by taking a writing course, or make use of our personalized counselling and development services. As a LA&PS student, you'll have access to University-wide resources as well as distinct programs and services offered by the Faculty. LEAD THE WAY Add something meaningful to your résumé. Volunteer on campus or with a local organization, address key issues in student government, lead a new student initiative, or participate in an innovative community- based research project. These are the experiences and skills that employers are looking for — hone them now to give yourself an advantage in the job market later. 5
