Our Programs


SCLD’s commitment to students’ successful transition into university life is reflected in Orientation and Orientation Week events. Orientation activities provided by SCLD include:

Media & Communications

SCLD’s new Media & Communications unit is a team of student ambassadors who are technology and social media savvy. They maintain the main SCLD media channels and serve as liaisons for other SCLD units, aiding them with any media projects or communications guidance they need.

Student Clubs/YU Connect

YU Connect is York’s new online system for student involvement and tracking extra-curricular experience in a revolutionary way. It gives students a directory to find clubs and match opportunities to their self-selected interests.

RED Zone

York’s RED Zone is a team of upper-year student ambassadors available to answer your questions, big or small, throughout your years at York U. In addition, they will provide the greater York community with various student involvement opportunities and serve as a transition hub for first year students.

Health Education
