Subject: York University
There seems to be a few York students on this forum who are willing to answer Q´s so here goes.

If I attend York for the Law and Society program in fall´05 I will be a commuter student (like a good number of students there). I was wondering how easy is it to make friends?

The environment at York is nice, it is fairly easy to make friends

do not commute. commuters have half the experience and satisfaction at university.

Get an apartment or stay in residence or go to another university.

York´s Rez system has almost 7,900 students
Off-campus student housing- about 12,000 students
Commuters- 11,000 (including part-time students)

I am from Timmins Ontario and I am going to university next year. I am excited to leave this town and move to a city but I am reconsidering York b/c people keep on telling me that it is really stuck up with snobs and is getting to be a party school.

-------------What do you think York students on this forum? Should I ignore this?

Let me know. Other options are UWO, Queens and Laurier. I like the program at York but I am not going to a school for 4 yrs if its a snobby environment.

it doesen´t matter which university one chooses to attend. People from all walks of life will be there. The beauty of uni, you won´t have to spend much time with any of these people. Then again just because people have expensive cars doesn´t always = snob.
