Servire Est Vivere
The College's motto, servire est vivere—to serve is to live—is an ongoing reminder of our mission. Our campus has long served as a place of opportunity where students can receive a practical, experiential education. Here, they build the foundations for their future careers, but even more importantly, they also develop tools to create lives of passion and purpose. By serving our students, York College becomes a catalyst for future generations who will make their own impact on their communities, their industries, and the world.
