In photos: Students return to campus for first week of classes
This week marked the start of a new academic year and it was great to see campus full of activity once again.
Below are a few photo highlights of the return to fully in-person classes.
McMaster is home to over 35,000 students from all over the world and we are so happy to have you back on campus!
Our libraries are once again filled with students studying and taking advantage of their many resources. We are happy to report that the Thode Makerspace, a place to learn, collaborate and experiment with a range of technologies, is – after two years – once again open.
Third-year biochemistry student Janki Vaghela takes a break to study in BSB Field after checking out the McMaster Students Union’s Welcome Week Sidewalk Sale where students got to connect with businesses in the Hamilton community.
Students find a cozy study spot in the sun in LR Wilson Hall. The 150,000 square-foot building is home to a 350-seat concert hall, interactive classrooms and nearly 20,000 square-feet of space dedicated to McMaster University’s Indigenous Studies Department.
The return of classes also means the return of some student-run businesses like The Grind. So good to see you back on campus! You can find The Grind in the basement of the McMaster University Student Centre (MUSC).
Students get guidance from Robert Wilton, professor of social geography, in their society and space course. “Being back on campus is just so different from virtual learning,” says third-year student Emmanuel Gill.
Students, students, everywhere you look – including here on the steps of the Burke Science Building (BSB). So good to have you back on campus, Marauders!
Best of luck with your academic studies this semester, Marauders. Only thirteen more weeks until exams!
