Getting Involved @ McGill for Undergraduates

The most frequent advice our upper-year students offer to the entering class is to get involved. This webinar aims to help students discover what opportunities for learning and development exist beyond the classroom and lecture hall. We designed this webinar to enrich students' university experiences by providing information on the benefits of getting involved and how to take those first steps towards engagement. We'll also tell you about our resources for getting involved and share tips and tools on how to manage your time and better appreciate the value of getting involved. Hosted by Campus Life & Engagement and the Students' Society of McGill University (SSMU).
