York’s Fall Reading Week activities offer something for everyone

Students who haven’t made plans for York’s Fall Reading Week, Oct. 12 to 16, should check out all the great activities and workshops that are available on the Fall Reading Week Web site.

The site also has a special Q-&-A checklist to help students assess how they’re doing. The checklist includes links to sites about academic advising, study skills, careers and campus social activities.

Right: There are plenty of reasons to be on campus during Fall Reading Week

The primary focus of the week will be Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 14 and 15, when a series of workshops and seminars are being held in locations around the Keele and Glendon campuses. The lineup includes sessions of interest to both undergraduate and graduate students, such as research and writing workshops, follow-up academic orientation and lessons in career planning and job search strategies. There’s even a contest to win a $500 YU-card credit just for becoming a Fall Reading Week Facebook fan.

In addition to the events and activities, all departments and services will be open during the week to assist students. Those students who want to meet with faculty members should check with their department offices for hours and availability.

Fall Reading Week also includes many events being held by Sport York. Visit the Sport York Web site for a full list of all games and athletic activities.
