Faculty, Students prepare for medical mission
For the York College students who will visit Haiti over spring break, the service-learning trip will be an adventure and a chance to gain hands-on, international experience.

After nearly a year of traveling the globe to serve in countries from Nepal to Swaziland, Hannah Gund ‘16 has returned to the U.S. with a renewed passion for ministry and a message for American Christians: Wake up! God is doing amazing things far beyond our borders!
Gund participated in the World Race, a program offered by Adventures in Missions (AIM), which sends teams of young adults to 11 countries in 11 months.

Last Thursday was a big day for academic excellence at York College. From honors and medals to GPA-improving, cookie-fueled study sessions, students are taking academics to the next level.
“Blessing” is not usually the word used to describe a cancer diagnosis.
However, that’s exactly how Roni (Arellano '01) Miller, head coach of the York College softball team, sees it.
A blessing that the cancer was caught so early. A blessing that this diagnosis has been a rallying point for her players, the campus, the community of York, and beyond.
A blessing that the diagnosis happened at all.
Miller went to the doctor in the fall because she’d been sick with a respiratory infection. It was October, breast cancer awareness month, and the clinic was offering a free gift if you scheduled a mammogram. Why not? she thought. I like free things.
