York University President and Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri has issued this invitation to the York community:
It’s that time of year again – time to show your #YUSpirit at Red & White Day!
On Tuesday, March 22, I invite all students, staff, faculty and alumni to join in the celebration and wear red and white or York gear to show your pride and passion for this great University.
This year, campus partners from across the University have come together to organize an incredible array of activities taking place on our Keele and Glendon campuses. This is the perfect time for us to show the world what we love about York, and to celebrate our achievements.
There are numerous ways to participate in Red & White Day, including:
- #YUSpirit photo contest and photo booth, online and in Vari Hall;
- Food trucks on both Keele and Glendon campuses;
- Spirit Rally at 12pm in the Student Centre;
- York Federation of Students Free Breakfast for students in Vari Hall;
- York staff Alumni Breakfast at Schulich;
- Film screening of Absence is Present, an award-winning student film and a Q&A with the director;
- A #YUTweetup with President Shoukri and Faculty of Science Dean Ray Jayawardhana; and,
- A Stressbusters Carnival in the Bear Pit, among many others.
I look forward to seeing you there!
