Your YSJ Reunion 2023

The rain certainly didn't dampen our spirits as alumni were welcomed back to our York campus for the first time in a decade.

Alumni from the last 60 years of our history, enjoyed meeting up with friends and creating new memories. The Student's Union was open throughout the day and alumni were able to enjoy music of their years, a specially created Spotify playlist made up of song requests from attendees. In the evening, alumni were treated to live music before a 3 course meal made by our fabulous catering department. Some lucky alumni won prizes in our raffle, which consisted of a range of prizes generously donated by local and alumni businesses.

Over the course of the event, due to our amazing alumni community, we were able to raise over £3,000 for our alumni-funded scholarships. This money will directly the impact the students who need it most and gives them the opportunity to follow in our alumni's footsteps.

Cordukes Circle 2023

Last March, our Vice Chancellor, Professor Karen Bryan OBE welcomed members of our Cordukes Circle back to campus to thank them for their continued support of the university. Guests were given an insight into York St John University’s future plans, toured our new Health Simulation Suite and heard from current scholarship recipients.
