Student Activities and Orientation

From the moment orientation leaders cheer you on at your campus arrival to the moment you wear the cap and gown, we jam-pack your semesters with action, fun, and opportunities to flourish.

What can a small college like York offer when it comes to campus events? Oh, you have no idea. We have more than 100 clubs and organizations — if you’re into it, we have it. You can get involved on campus, right from your first few weeks when we have an Involvement Fair and you can meet club members face-to-face. Our campus activities calendar is packed.

Road trips to New York, the annual Fall Fest, concerts featured entertainers from Wiz Khalifa to Kathy Griffin — it’s just a taste of what our small college with big-time programming offers. We don’t stop there, either. Leadership development is huge for us, such as our ExCEL events that give you hyper-focused lessons on personal and professional development. Action-packed doesn’t begin to describe us.
