Spring on the York College campus

Andrew Shaw

"York College is the kind of community where you can't believe you've only been here for a month when it feels like you've known everyone for a lifetime. I try to bring that feeling to our social media and digital communications."


Andy Shaw is a trained improvised comedian and has performed throughout the region doing stand up and improv comedy. He's also an accomplished humor columnist, specializing in parenting topics. He teaches a First Year Seminar class for York College, "Funny That You Mentioned It", about using humor in professional situations.
