Global Campus Programme
Global Campus Socials
Relaxed and informal events where you can meet new people and enjoy some free refreshments while exploring a new cultural topic. Every Tuesday, 5.00pm to 7.00pm, during term time.
4 October - Mocktail Quiz Night
The Brits love a good quiz night and at YSJ Global Campus we love a good mocktail!
So here's your chance to enjoy both! Come armed with your best general knowledge (in your brain not your phone) and join a team to see if you can be victorious and win a prize! Tag us on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) and let us know any question categories you'd like to see included.
11 October - Health and Harmony - Global Campus Yoga
Namaste! Do you need more zen in your life?
We've teamed up with YSJ Active (@YSJActive) to run a free meditation or yoga session. Tag us on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) and let us know if you would prefer yoga or meditation and we will go with the majority! Then come along and join us for a peaceful session to add to the tranquility of your life. All abilities welcome!
18 October - Diwali Food Festival
Happy Diwali! Join us to celebrate the Festival of Lights with music, games and delicious food!
Would you like to contribute? Perhaps you can lead a dance class or bring some homemade treats you and your family traditionally eat at Diwali? Or maybe you can do henna tattoos? We love it when our Global Campus Community gets involved! Let us know on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
25 October - Halloween Spook-tacular!
There is quite the mystery over the actual origins of Halloween but what we do know is it is great fun!
York is famous for its local ghosts and the city has some 'frightfully' good ghost tours. Places are limited and booking will open shortly.
1 November - Marauding Muggles: Harry Potter Night!
The Shambles in York is said to be the inspiration for the film version of Diagon Alley and there is a whole host of wizarding wonderfulness in the city!
We are bringing a little bit of it to our Global Campus, so get your wands ready, hold on to your broomsticks and join us for a night of fun. Find out your Hogwarts House, cast spells and try some weird and wonderful treats. Wizards and muggles welcome!
5 November - Guy Fawkes' Night
Remember, remember, the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. We see no reason, why gunpowder and treason, should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes was born right here in York, so come celebrate the British tradition of Guy Fawkes' Night with us! We'll be watching a local firework display and learning about the history of the Gunpowder Plot. There might even be toffee apples! (Please bring cash to pay for the display. We will treat you to toffee apples and transport). Places are limited and booking will open shortly. Please note, this event will only happen if we get enough demand.
8 November - Global Campus Craft Club
Calling all creatives! Global Campus is hosting our very first Craft Club, where we'll be experimenting with all manner of creative materials and techniques.
Why not come along and show us your skills, or even try out something new! Do you have a traditional craft skill, from your home country, that you could share with us? Let us know on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) or at email@example.com and we can buy the supplies and you can teach the Global Campus community!
15 November - Global Campus World Cinema Night
Do you love going to the cinema? So do we!
Come to our Global Campus World Cinema Night and enjoy a movie with free pizza.
Vote for the movie you want to watch on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) and we will watch it together with some delicious popcorn.
22 November - Ten Pin Bowling
Global Campus are hosting an off-campus social at Tenpin bowling alley - come along to chat with friends, meet new people and show off your knock-out bowling skills!
We will get you there and back for free but ask you to pay for your games (about £3) and drinks (selected drinks will be 50% off). Laser tag as well as baseball and cricket simulator are also available. Places are limited and booking will open soon.
29 November - Global Campus Lego Night
Perhaps you're an architect in the making, or just wish you were a kid again - either way, we think you'll love our Lego night!
Come and join us for drinks and snacks, and to build your very own Lego palace!
6 December - Global Campus Christmas Fair
Ho ho ho! We're really getting into the Christmas spirit and can't wait to share it with you at our traditional Christmas Fair.
Join in to sing along to your favourite Christmas songs, drink hot chocolate and even pick up a present or two, from local makers and shops. We can't promise Santa will be there but we hope you are! If you would like to make and sell something let us know on Instagram (@globalcampusysj) and we will arrange a place for you!
13 December - A Very British Tea Party
Time for Tea? Always!
If there's one thing we love in the UK, it's tea. Join us for a quintessentially British afternoon tea, complete with cucumber sandwiches, scones, and of course - pots of tea!
