SpartaNation RoadCrew

To celebrate York College’s 50th anniversary as a four-year institution, the Office of Alumni Relations’ SpartaNation tour will make 50 stops between January and June 2019. Current students (YCP Road Crew) and staff will travel by van to various locations, where they will touch base with alumni, students, parents and prospective families through dinners, networking receptions and site visits. (During site visits, alumni provide an overview of their company and the day-to-day responsibilities of their position, usually followed by a tour. These visits help expose new internship, mentor, and job opportunities for students and the York College Career Development Center.)
