One of the three universities in Toronto, the other two being Ryerson and University of Toronto. Known for low admission averages for most of their programs, its known as the "Plan B" option by a lot of high school students aspiring to go to U of T. That being said, as the school doesn't have the reputation of a school like U of T, it is also known for the much better treatment to its students, such as giving large scholarships and not lowering students' marks to maintain a class average.
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.
The people who take my money.
"Hey man, wanna eat some food and shit?"
"Can't do it man. I have to go sell myself on Sentinel Road and give the money I make to York University."
A pretentious, Marxist school in the Northernmost point of Toronto. Largely inhabited by prissy children of rich families that are entirely supported by mummy and daddy's wages while their child pursues a useless degree in psychology or theater. A place that leaves said undergraduates well trained to apply philosophical principles to asking "do you want fries with that?"
Also, a place where U of T students go for an easy post-grad degree.
York University graduate of the bachelor of film studies: Welcome to McDonalds, Can I take your order?
** 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."
if you can hold a fork, you can go to York. Low entrance standards for the majority of programs and a tendacny to throw an ungodly amount of money at students to entice them to accept their offers of admission. Which students then reject, and go to a better university.
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 #1: I go to UofT, where do you go?
guy #2: I go to York.
guy #1: Why did you choose York?
guy #2: cuz, I'm a dumbass.
A place where degenerates go to learn and congregate with other retards like themselves.
A school with no deep rooted history and does not even rank on the worlds top 500 universities - so with that said, please shut up you retards and stop bragging. York is the best university for students with mental retardation whether it has been clinically proven or has gone unnoticed. The admin staff are great at spotting retards and granting them admission.
Look at that silly retard, they must be from York University.
An ultra-liberal post-secondary institution (though it should be called a high school) located north of Toronto. Below are some important characteristics of this shithole:
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.
There is a well-known saying regarding York university: If you can hold a fork, you can go to York.
York University is a school that is populated with people who do not act their age and who are dumb asses. York is a horrible school and the only reason why people go there is because it is so easy. Here are some guidelines for men if they want to be accepted by the students in that school:
1. Buy a cell phone
2. Buy expensive clothes
3. Look like you are in your 20s
4. Have to be tall around 5'9 to 6'0 is what they usually want
5. Be clean cut
If you do not follow these guidelines, numbers 3 and 4 are most important, you will be subjected to childish name calling like fagot, pussy, bitch, fag, little shit or you will be pointed out, here is an example, "Look at that guy" York should not be called a university it should be called a high school. It should be burned down and someone from U.F.T should piss on the ashes.
York where the dumb asses go
York the school where the picked on want to gun down everyone
