"My time as a History major at York was one of the most significant periods of my life. My transition from high school to university was challenging. I was scared, confused, underprepared, and unhappy. It was not until I switched my major to History that I began to feel more academically fulfilled. Over the next four years, what I began to value most from my time at York was the joy I experienced attending my history classes. The new content presented before me each year truly expanded my scope of knowledge and understanding. I value how York helped me develop into the academic I am today. Lastly, and most importantly, I value the friendships I made with my classmates in the history program."
