In anticipation of York University’s first-ever virtual Red & White Day, the archives has selected a number of historical images featuring Keele campus, Glendon campus, and York University Libraries. These images provide a great opportunity to upgrade your virtual background and show off your #YUspirit on Thursday, October 29th, 2020. To set your virtual background: Save an image, launch Zoom, click on the up arrow beside the camera, click "choose virtual background," and select York background image. Note that a number of official York University Zoom backgrounds have also been made available by the university.
