York 101 and #YORK101 - Own Your First Day

The York 101 On-Campus Event is open to first-year undergraduate students and their parents or family supports. The day will begin with an overview session that covers orientation week and York Orientation Day. Students will then be split into small groups and paired with senior student leaders to learn about key topics such as student finances, the York Federation of Students health plan, academic supports, YUSTART, important deadlines, and accessing key resources such as transportation/parking, food services, the library, and the bookstore.

#YORK101 is our summer-long social media campaign in support of new students. Each Monday we kick off the week with a YouTube video addressing a different topic of interest for first year students. Upper year students and series hosts, Kabi and Mayu, dispense all the tips, tricks and best practices they've learned over their years at York.



Follow the #YORK101 hashtag across all social media and keep up with us online for more First-Year content!
