Freshman Seminars

The Freshman program at Mac places a special emphasis on your first year on campus.

Research shows that foundations build during your first year are key to your success.

Freshman Seminar is designed to help you get accustomed to your new academic life and its expectations. It also helps you connect with the University and its faculty and students.  Most importantly it makes you start thinking of Macdonald campus as your home.


All events will be held in Raymond Building, R2-045, unless otherwise indicated
