Is it time 'YFile' had a new name? Cast your vote to help us decide

As reported earlier in YFile, the publication is undergoing a major redesign project to refresh and enhance YFile’s website and newsletter. Over the years YFile has become a central hub, a voice of recognition and a place of celebration that communicates the impact and change York University has on our community and the world at large. The refreshed publication will help ensure YFile continues to be relevant and contemporary as the University’s primary information channel supporting the University’s goals, and celebrating its academic and research excellence.

As part of the refresh, the YFile team is considering a new name that more accurately captures and reflects the personality, voice and spirit of today’s York University.

Below is the shortlist of proposed names. We would very much appreciate getting your view on which name, if any, you as a YFile reader would prefer, should we make the change.

The York Latest
Highlights that the stories are new, ready to be shared across York, and that innovation is an integral part of our DNA.

Spotlight@York
This name highlights that the content is significant, “spotlighting” the work of York faculty and researchers for readers to discover and enjoy.

The York Story

YFile
The current name reflecting York news gathering and filing of stories.

So, if you could please take a minute to consider the proposed names above and then vote for your preferred name using this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YFilerenamingsurvey before Friday, April 30 at 11:59 p.m. it would be most appreciated.
