First-Year Student Pledge

I pledge to sincerely commit myself to five principles:

  • I will give my best effort to my coursework and seek assistance when appropriate.
  • I will uphold the highest ethical standards in everything that I do.
  • I will pursue opportunities for personal development and civic engagement.
  • I will actively participate in college programs and services.
  • I will be a devoted and responsible citizen of York College, of my community, my nation, and the world.

Do you commit yourself to these principles? If so, say “I DO”

Alma Mater

By Andrea Kazlas, Class of 1987 Hail York College! Proudly we see York as the star of The City University so here we stand to pledge by your name to bring our college glory, honor, and fame.

From all corners of the world, from our rich diversity, in our common quest for truth we have formed a family; and though we may be far away, yet our hearts are ever near to the school we hold so dear.

Though the road was often rough we worked hours late and long when the going seemed too tough we strove harder to be strong and now we’ve made it here at last we can hold our heads up high we can spread our wings and fly.
