The Orientation party

So you ‘re accepted to the York Graduate Program in Physics and Astronomy. Good for you! You may want to know about some of the ground rules or library resources or you may simply want to know about the people here. This orientation party makes it possible to meet colleagues, hear news about new regulations or rules and new facilities available to graduate students. You can also ask questions about unclear things. We can enjoy free pizza, pop and snacks as we start a new school year with new people. We have a great mentor, Mrs. Marlene Caplan. She kindly explains all the regulations and answers all of your questions.
