On behalf of MCGSS and Mac OGS, thank you for participating in Fall 2021 Graduate Orientation activities.

snowflakesIncoming Winter 2022 students, keep an eye on this page for events to come in early January 2022!

Reach Out and Stay Connected!

We invite new and current Mac students to stay connected by joining the ongoing virtual Mac Grad Buddy Group program. You can meet senior students and have answers to practical questions! We hope to have buddy groups meet on campus soon.

We also encourage you to reach out and participate in activities held by your graduate student societies, MCGSS and PGSS.

Staying healthy and safe is very important. The folks at the McGill Wellness Hub are there for all students! Check out their rich offering of services. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need to talk to someone.

Ways to Glimpse the “Mac” Experience

As a special “Mac” feature, your Macdonald Campus Graduate Student Society, MCGSS, recorded a light-hearted welcome video, Mac Campus Covid Diaries, to bring you a glimpse of life at Mac Campus during the latter part of summer 2020.

A recently recorded video tour of Macdonald Campus (targeting new undergraduate students) can also give you a great idea of life at Macdonald Campus.

Watch our Macdonald Campus Virtual Send-Off webinar to gain even more insight into the Mac Experience!

For an introduction to McGill-wide services and resources for student academic success, take a few minutes to view a Welcome Video for McGill graduate students.
