VP Social - Shenali Don
Director Social - Nicholas McFarlene
Hey Eagles! My name is Shenali Don (she/her) and I am looking forward to being your VP Social for the 2021-2022 academic year. Along with Nicholas McFarlane, who will be your Director Social, we will make sure to plan the events that will allow everyone to bond amongst each other and have a good time. Our goal as the Social Department is to bring New College closer together and strengthen interrelationships between NCC and our constituents. Social events are a great opportunity to hang out with your friends from York outside of a school environment. With trips to Niagara, Montreal, Blue Mountain, and so on, there is definitely something for everybody.
Social events also give you the opportunity to meet new people from your college and especially others from different colleges in York. While school is important, it is also important to slow down and enjoy the moment. These events are where I have made some of my best memories and met my best friends - and I’m sure you will too.
To top it all off, we have a formal at the end of the year to culminate the successes of the school year and celebrate the achievements of New College. It is a great way to end the year off right!
If you have any suggestions, questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to message either me or Nicholas on Instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily get back to you.
It’s going to be a great year and I hope to see you all!
Among Us was as a popular game last year and its even better when you play with your friends. So for the month of November we ran Among Us Wednesdays to see who really is sus and did prize raffles for attendees.
To celebrate Halloween we collaborated with Schulich to host a murder mystery. Students were divided into teams to solve a murder case and won prizes.
Netflix Party's are always a great way to bond over watching an interesting film. Constituents got to have some laughs in the comfort of their home and win giftcards for attending.
Jeopardy was another popular event for our Eagles. We asked many brain twisting questions from various categories to see who can get the grand prize and call themselves a winner.
During your time here at York, you will always get the chance to meet new people. So we collaborated with Bethune and Vanier College for Valentine's Day to match you with students across thee college with who you are most compatible with.
Although we were not able to host our annual formal due to Covid we still wanted to acknowledge and congratulate our outstanding Eagles and Council members. Along with saying farewell to 2020 graduates.

Off Campus events are always a hit and this time we went to Pursuit OCR with Mclaughlin College. It's a great chance meet students from other colleges and have a fun while you’re at it.
