York is a secondBrightChemistry
York is a second class university because they treat students like second class people.
York has this fake image of being super liberal and inclusive but it's all fake.Everyone at york is milking you for money and they don't even feel the need to be pleasant.

Question
Ive enjoyed some of my classes.Not so brightCultures/Civilization
Ive enjoyed some of my classes. Some professors are great, some are awful. The campus is dead; not much is going on. Always stay alert. Most clubs are inactive and it has a sketchy athletics program. At least it still has the university vibe unlike Glendon that is no different from a middle school in terms of size and people.

Question
York is a TERRIBLE school! They claim toQuite BrightCultures/Civilization
York is a TERRIBLE school! They claim to care about students but they only care about getting money from students. I have been here for my whole BA and I couldnt have regret this decision more.

My program had no resources, and if anyone wanted to get help they would have to pay extra for a tutor. 90% of the professors were wind-bags who only cared about a paycheque and how much they could make from students. Only 10% were actually helpful and wanted their students to succeed. The teachers I have complained about, the facuilty did nothing but thank me for my concern and laugh in my face.In terms of administration, I should have known from day 1 york is a shit school. I got my application in on time but because york admin didnt get to it in time I got rolled over for summer semester. Even in terms of admin for disabled students, there is no care or regard for students. They are there to get paid and dont care about you or whats going on.
