SOARING is designed to recognize and reward those students that are taking the initiative to make the most of their university experience. Through SOARING, you are also able to network and make new friends by attending events and through valuable networking opportunities that are made available by the SOARING program.

The ADVANCE component is specially designed to enhance the experience of continuing students. Activities identified for ADVANCE highlight activities and information that every student can use to supplement their academic career.

SOARING Points can be accumulated for participation in workshops/events held in the your faculty, college, student clubs/ government/organizations and other activities on the York campus. The more you attend, the more points you can amass, and the higher your chance of winning monthly prizes.

Advance - Points
