York University staff and faculty are encouraged to sign up to participate in ASK Me (formerly YU Belong), a campaign that helps students navigate campus, find classrooms and discover resources during their first days at the University.

The first weeks of a new student’s campus life will set the course for their years ahead, and those who volunteer to participate as an ASK Me ambassador help ease this transition and make a long-lasting, positive impression.

Register to participate in ASK Me by filling out this online form.

Volunteers will receive an “Ask Me” lanyard and an “I Heart YU” button

When your ASK Me package is ready, you will receive an email letting you know that you can pick it up at the Student Community and Leadership Development office’s front desk at South 172 Ross Building. The package includes an “Ask Me” lanyard and an “I Heart YU” button. Wearing the lanyard and button between Sept. 4 and 15 will ensure that you are easily recognizable as an ASK Me ambassador.

Upper-year students, staff and faculty are also encouraged to volunteer for York Orientation Day, happening on Sept. 4. Sign up online at to be a part of the biggest event on campus.

York Orientation Day is a full-day event for all of York University’s new undergraduate students.

Volunteer opportunities include helping students with wayfinding from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. and serving as an usher at the Welcome Ceremony from 4:30 to 8 p.m. (dinner provided).
