#YORK101: Colleges

November 9, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


It’s actually one of my favorite scenes
in Harry Potter, Gryffindor was the best fit for him. Honestly isn’t it sick how we have like a similar housing system here where we go to school? It’s like we go to our own little Hogwarts! You know what? You’re actually right. Here at York, we have a college system that operates the same way as the
housing system did at Hogwarts, except rather than being sorted by a sorting hat
you’re being sorted by your program. Exactly, and at your college you have
the opportunity to meet so many other students that are in the same stage as you, and even upper year students. I mean the colleges all compete against each other in sports just like how the houses did at Hogwarts in Quidditch! But don’t take our word for it; I think it’s best if you hear it from your 2018
orientation chairs. WE’RE YOUR 2018 ORIENTATION CHAIRS!! Hey Cougars, I’m Daniella, I am your
2018 orientation chair this year, and what I love most about Calumet is the fact that
we are the only college without a flag; we actually have a peace rock that is to
keep us in touch with our indigenous roots. I hope to see you guys all at Frosh! What’s up wolves? My name is Alec and I’m from McLaughlin college. Mac is such a wonderful place for you to
find your footing at York. We have such an amazing variety of clubs and events
happening all year long, and I can’t wait for you to experience it first hand! Hey Winters! I’m Kat and we’re an inclusive community so there’s a place for you here, no matter who you are. [in french] Salut lions! Je m’appelle Stephen et je serai votre directeur d’orientation pour 2018 I can’t wait for all of y’all to the be at Frosh week 2018 it’s gonna be the best! Probably the best thing about Glendon is how much we all love each other! I can’t wait to see you all there! Heart
bombs! What’s up Eagles! My name is Maya and I’m part of New College; come join
our community! And guess what Eagles? I’m part of New College too! And we’re best
friends! [singing] I believe that we can fly! New College out! Hey Spartans I’m Patrick and I’m your orientation chair for Stong College 2018. Here at Stong we have a bunch of sports that you can participate in and you can play other colleges in. See you at Frosh 2018! Hi everyone, my
name is Beste, and I’m from Vanier College and we have a big family to all
of you to join! Shout out to the Panthers! [mumbled] Your hand is in my face. Hey Lassondians! My name’s Emily and
at Lassonde we always have really cool interactive events going on, whether it’s
engineering competitions, hackathons, or really awesome speakers. I can’t wait to
see you all! Hey everyone my name is Justin and I’m from Founders College. At Founders College we’re big believers of family, and community. Hi, my name is Anika, I’m the Schulich O-chair. If you’re looking to network
or gain some new friends come over to Schu and get those LinkedIn connections
and Instagram followers. What’s up dragons! It’s your girl Melissa
here; I am from Bethune College and something that makes our college very
unique is that we’re very inclusive and we’re a very diverse college. We have
a lot of like social events that cater to all sorts of personality types, and the likes
and needs of different individuals. If you’re interested in athletics we have a
great intramurals program, and we have academics as well, so it’s just a very open space;
very inclusive for all people. Dragons out! It’s honestly amazing to see what
each of the different colleges have to bring to the York community. If you want to figure out what college
you’re affiliated with and you can check online just look for the college finder
at orientation.yorku.ca Peace! See you at Orientation week!
