York University’s main institutional Twitter and Facebook accounts will re-align in the new year. The changeover will take place on Jan. 3, 2018.
Communications & Public Affairs (C&PA) will use “YorkUniversity” on its channels to streamline institutional information and news shared with the York U community and the general public, and the Division of Students will use “YorkUStudents” for the sharing of student-related information such as academic dates, OSAP details, and information about student campus services and resources, for example.
As of Jan. 3, students, community members and the general public can follow York University on Facebook at:
• “YorkUniversity” (managed by C&PA, and previously called “York University – Home”)
This channel will share information on a broad range of pan-University topics, and will highlight events, news and stories happening at York University’s campuses, and York University-related news around the world.
• “YorkUStudents” (managed by the Division of Students, and previously called “York University”)
This channel is dedicated to current and future York University students and will provide information relevant to students. Current students will stay up to date on registrarial and financial services, academic and professional resources, as well as student life and campus events. Future students will learn more about program options, admission requirements, application processes and deadlines, as well as campus culture. This channel will also provide helpful information for parents and families of current and future students.
