Yes there was. My thoughts go out to the victims and I hope they catch the ass holes who came onto our campus and did this (whether they are a current student or not).
But before you blow this up I ask that you think about this more. There’s a lot of important discussion happening on Facebook right now and I encourage you to read and participate.
This shooting does not mean that York is unsafe. It does NOT give credibility (imo) that York is dangerous. This is an isolated incident, we still don’t have more details, and York is still considered statistically more safe than other university campuses in Toronto.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I think it’s important to add to the discussion in an intelligent way. I don’t recommend going on twitter and calling York a ‘gangsta’ school like a bunch of other messages I’ve read. Use your opinions and thoughts to help shape this into a learning experience. Use your power as a student to help bring the changes you want to see (such as cctv in the student centre).

(also this is just my opinion, the other admins can add to this if they want to share theirs)
Just a reminder, for those of you enrolling in summer school and have enrollment dates between March 1st and March 31st - the registration deposit of $300 is due by April 10. This is to ensure you remain enrolled in your classes.
I wanted to put out an early reminder, so everyone was aware of it and have ample time to pay the fee.
