posted on August 9: Welcome Day @ Mac embraces new students, families


Dozens of first-year students and their families will be on campus Friday, Aug. 10 to enjoy the activities provided at the annual Welcome Day @ Mac.

The day is designed to acquaint new students and their families with the faces and facilities provided by the University.

It's an opportunity to be welcomed to the McMaster community and helps students begin to feel at home in their soon-to-be new home.

Various activities will be ongoing throughout the day including seminars about financing the upcoming year, living off-campus, using the University computers, libraries and a session titled “Flea's Eye View: How to Succeed at Mac.”

As well, students and their families can take tours of the campus, the Ivor Wynne Centre and residences.

In addition to the tours and information sessions, there will be two tents set up on the lawns of the inner campus with students and University employees on hand to answer questions about the many student services and clubs.

Lunch is available for $2 at the tent in front of the Burke Science building.

Students and families that would like to spend a night on campus can arrange for overnight accommodation by contacting Housing & Conference Services at 905-525-9140 ext. 27222.
