McLaughlin College Orientation 2018

orientation 2016


Message from the Master

Welcome to McLaughlin College.  You are part of McLaughlin College because you are majoring in one of our affiliated academic programs – Criminology, Global Political Studies, Interdisciplinary Social Science, Law and Society, Political Science, Public Administration, Sociology or Work and Labour Studies. York is one of only three universities in Canada organized on a college basis, where every undergraduate student is a member of a college.  Your college is a social, recreational and intellectual community of students, faculty and staff on a personal scale, where you can be known as an individual not a number.  This year is McLaughlin College’s 50th year, and we are planning many exciting events to celebrate this anniversary.

I hope to see you at many of these, beginning with Winter Term Orientation, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3RD.  You will meet the Master, College Council, and your peer mentor, as you are introduced to the academic services, programs, recreational activities and facilities available to you at McLaughlin and throughout York to help with your transition to University.

David Leyton-Brown, Master of McLaughlin College and Professor of Politics
