EduBuddies is an initiative organized by the Education Undergraduate Society (EdUS), which aims to facilitate the transition to McGill University and higher education for the Faculty of Education's incoming first-year students. This program is a wonderful opportunity for upper-year students (rising U2-U4+) to engage in leadership within the faculty and to make a meaningful impact on new students within their program. New students can use this program to meet new friends in the faculty through social events.
