My Story…

During my York life, I had the great fortune of meeting exceptional graduate students who have gone on to amazing careers and who will help shape our future.  Can you help continue this legacy?  I will be walking 5 KM on the Tom Taylor Trail in Newmarket, ON in October (date to be dependent!).  As you know, I am always ducking the camera but I promise to post pictures.  As a side benefit, I am walking with former AVP & Dean of Graduate Studies, John Lennox.  Us 'northerners' have to stick together!


Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 18. One of YURA's major activities is raising funds for graduate scholarships. On the day of the race, our volunteers will walk or run as a group, and then meet for lunch. We will have fun, and at the same time help the student community in an impactful and meaningful way through recruiting sponsors. To learn how to register to walk or run on October 18 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
