"The most pleasant surprise I experienced at York was the friendliness of the staff and students. I found myself making friends very quickly and although York is a school with a large population you can still find communities within the school that feel just like family. I was able to develop lasting friendships and moments that will stay with me for a life time and bonds that I will continue to maintain throughout my career. It is crucial to make sure you stay connected and learn different things from different people. Everyone at York is so open, willing to help and have been very friendly!"
