Here’s how it works; use your phone to take York Birthday-relevant pictures and tweet the pictures using the hashtag #yuspirit, then the pictures will be printed and ready for you to pickup in the Vari Link!
  • York Is U will also be offering some food perks! Mmmmmmh, who’s hungry? York is U will have a popcorn station and snow cone station to be manned by our awesome volunteers! We also will be involved in handing out lots and lots and LOTS of cupcakes!
  • York University will be holding their annual best in-class photo and spirit photo competitions! Remember to wear your red and white or York U gear to participate in either.
