It is an evening where everyone looks their best and a time for students, staff, and faculty alike come together and celebrate the best York College has to offer. The annual All-College Banquet was held at the Stone Creek Event Center in McCool Junction and gave everyone a chance to congratulate the clubs and people that have made the YC experience.
From the awards, Delta Chi Alpha won the Highest Club Academics award, Kingsmen was given the Biggest Heart award (for donating the most blood), Delta won the Women's All-Sports award, Kyodai took the Men's All-Sports award, and Kingsmen won the Club Service award.
