Hey, I’m Chris your Student Activities Officer. I am responsible for looking after anything you might do outside of the academic part of University life. As a student, you get the chance to do things you might neverget to do again; so whether it’s spending a week volunteering at Kids Camp, raising money and challenging yourself by Skydiving with RAG or picking up a new hobby with our wide range of Societies, there’s something for you and much more at York.
