Welcome from the President
Welcome to the York College community online. Whether you're an alumnus or alumna of the college, a longtime friend or exploring the possibilities for your future, let us help you. Contact my office or others on campus to answer questions and serve you.
I came to work as president in early 2009 and for me it was a true homecoming. I first saw this campus as a freshman about 40 years ago. I had never seen this part of the country before and had no idea what to expect. As a new student, the first person I met on campus asked me a series of questions. Where was I from? What was going to be my major? What future plans did I have? I could answer the first question, but had no idea about the last two.
York prepared me academically, which I expected. However, York also prepared me spiritually and socially, which has become more important to me throughout my career. At York I was able to find my future, find lifelong friends (including my wife), find myself and find God.
I invite you to consider what York can do for you. This college has prepared thousands of students for the business of life. I encourage you to learn more about how you may join them and find a great preparation for life here at York College.
Let me know how we may assist you.
