I came to York University as an outBrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I came to York University as an out of province student and had to live in residence. First off, the residence life is horrible. Everyone stays in their rooms and no one talks to each other. People at York are often full of themselves and very rude. If you want an university experience with a fun social life and a strong group of friends, it is a bit hard to do at York. The classes in my program are very interesting and the profs are very competent. For resources, York has basically none. They clearly do not care about their students. Faculty seem to barely do their job. The campus is very big and most buildings (Schulic, Lassonde...) are beautiful.

A very disorganized andBrightKinesiology
A very disorganized and incompetent admin/faculty. Campus is in the middle of nowhere, and homeless people are commonly seen walking around campus. Expensive food options. Extremely political biased faculty. Very low standards of admission. Strikes are very common.

The school itself is very unique.Bright
The school itself is very unique. Some of the profs are very available to help, others seem to hide their contact info making it impossible to reach them. If you plan on coming to York, know that the school/campus (from what I've experienced) is safe. Now... the reasons I'm not fond of this school, is because how I've been treated by the faculty. I was a transfer student from another university, and thought I'd get into the same program as before. I was wrong but thought it wouldn't be that hard to fix. Even though it was still the same subject, it wasn't the same degree as before. And now I have to work very hard to get that title back. I also decided that I wanted to switch majors. So I went to that subject's department only to be told I only have 1 transferable credit (i have 2 years of post-secondary under my belt. There is no way I only have 1 credit). So I argued and argued until someone finally came to help me. I had way more than 1. But I still have to jump through hoops to get into the other major. I won't even be able to apply to switch for another year.. and even at that, I'm not guaranteed to get in. So I could quite possible be wasting my time and money to do all these courses that may not even lead to something. I do not like this school, and had I known half the things I know now, I would've NEVER transferred here.
