Whether you live on campus or commute, your college is your community hub for socializing and accessing peer support. Our Colleges in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies organize academic services, such as peer mentoring, and keep you connected on campus through events like Orientation and Convocation. Colleges coordinate student get-togethers, post-class activities, workshops and trips. The college buildings are located conveniently on campus and have comfortable spaces where you can hold study groups, prepare for presentations or relax between classes.
Our college’s theme is “self, culture and society.” With a strong emphasis on academic excellence, Founders is committed to your development as a well-rounded individual.
We are York’s “public policy” college. If Justice, Criminology or Political Science is your passion, McLaughlin is your home! We also emphasize the arts, music, poetry and athletics.
We strive to provide all students with space to participate in student government, attend social activities and get academic help, and offer a strong social and intellectual community to drive positive change.
Our motto is “to belong and contribute,” and Vanier has lots of ways you can get involved – it’s the only college with its own basketball court and it houses the only extracurricular theatre company on campus.
