York University President and Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri has issued this invitation to the York community:
I am delighted to invite you to join me and the York community in celebrating #YUSpirit at Red & White Day on March 23. Wear your red and white or York gear to show your pride in York University and our dynamic community.
This Red & White Day will be particularly special for me as it will be my last as President of York University. As we celebrate York’s latest achievements, this is also an opportunity to reflect on a decade of impact made by students, faculty, staff and alumni over the years.
On March 23, there are a number of ways that you can get involved in Red & White Day:
- Enter the #YUSpirit Photo Contest.
- Take advantage of the York U Bookstore’s semiannual Red & White Day sale, including 25 per cent off red and white and York gear.
- Attend one of the many events that are planned for the day, including the free YFS student breakfast, the Stressbuster Carnival and arcade games in Vari Hall, on-the-spot career advising, the Red & White Day Faculty & Staff World Café, and the Spirit Rally.
- Join me at 1pm in the McEwen Auditorium as I deliver my “Last Lecture” and engage in a conversation with the York community. RSVP here for my “Last Lecture”.
I look forward to seeing you next week as we come together to celebrate our York spirit, pride and impact!
President & Vice-Chancellor
