1. Large numbers of Jewish professors and students, which explains York's strong left-wing views.
2. Close proximity to Jane & Finch, an area of Toronto notoriously known for high crime rates, street gangs, and drug dealers. This explains the countless thefts and sexual assualts that have taken place on campus. Campus security doesn't give a shit.
3. Greedy TAs (08-09 strike)
4. Rich, cocky, and pretentious students who spend more time on their iPhones than their studies.
York university is the dumping ground of high school dropouts and dumbfucks who can't get into other universities.
Two types of people go to York. Lower end, under achieving students as well as well above average students with foresight (the latter going to an easier school in order to maintain a higher GPA and there for get into better post secondary programs).
Sally the UofT goer: Hey, Sam, which university did you pick?
Sam of York University: Well, I picked York because...
Sally (interrupting) : Ha, anyone who can hold a fork can go to York. I like a challenge so I picked U of T.
Sally: Oh hey, Sam! Long time no see! Hows it going?
Sam: Well, I've been hitting the books pretty hard and I finally got accepted into Medical School! And to U of T of all places! How about you?
Sally: Well, I've tried my best but by the looks of it I wont be going to Medical School after all. Never the less, I can probably become a teacher.
(the following story is based off of thousands of stories each year.)
p.s. it is in no way aiming at teachers, but rather suggesting that taking the easier way sometimes IS the right way
p.s.s. while the above story uses york as the "easy university", it could be McMaster, Western etc, all fine schools in the GTA.
Also, a place where U of T students go for an easy post-grad degree.
** Actual paraphrase of a York University Residence inhabitant in Tatham Hall: "Yo guy, I just drank a 24 that I bought with my trust fund to my head and rubbed my sweaty balls against my roommate's forehead. Yo, I'm so epic."
A pretentious institution focused on the importance of Gucci, Prada and American Eagle...Warning may cause temporary insanity for the rare intillect.
Essentially the university that NO ONE wants to go to. Their only good programs are the Schulich and Osgoode programs. Everything else is shit... PURE SHIT.
guy #2: I go to York.
guy #1: Why did you choose York?
guy #2: cuz, I'm a dumbass.
