I love York’s campus because of its peaceful environment with some excitement buzzing here and there. I enjoy the college community where I get to meet different people and that’s also where I met most of my good friends in university. In terms of teaching and academics, the lecturers at York are great teachers who really have a passion to help students understand not just theories and concepts but to see how these things are applicable in a real-life scenario. They are very friendly and they are always happy to sit down, have a chat and help improve students’ understanding of the modules.

I enjoy living in York because it’s a beautiful, historical city. There are a lot of historical structures and museums that one can explore. I like that it’s a safe and quiet environment but there’s also multiple annual events that happen where students can join in. Socially, I enjoy running and playing basketball with my friends especially when the weather gets warmer. My friends and I have a weekly movie session where we take turns picking the movie. I also tend to have friends gather at my house and we do a games night after cooking dinner together. Besides, I enjoy meeting up with friends and new people at societies’ social events. I appreciate that York has a wide range of clubs and societies to choose from so there’s always one where I can find people who share similar interests with.
