Student life at York University is enriched through engagement with clubs. Clubs offer opportunities to interact informally with students and professors with similar interests. There are three clubs associated with the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Are you fascinated by the stars and the mysteries of the universe, own a telescope or wish to get one? Join the Astronomy Club! It unites students who have an interest in astronomy whether it is academic or recreational, and provides astronomical activites of interest. The Astronomy Club is open to all members of the York community and offers a variety of fun and interactive ways for professional and amateur astronomy enthusiasts alike, to celebrate a common interest in the cosmos. Astronomy is a science that has helped to shape human culture over the ages and has influenced our imaginations throughout history, and can be enjoyed by everyone. We thoroughly encourage the distribution of astronomical resources and the education of astronomy to the general public.
