a red S made up of two speech bubbles on a white background. Above the S text reads "Studenting". Below, "a podcast by/for/about McGill students" Studenting: the Podcast For, By, and About McGill Students!

Hosted by student staff and produced by Student Services, Studenting explores how McGill students can live their best life beyond the classroom. Hosts Derah (B.C. '22), Rosa (B.A. '22), and Margaret (B.A. 23) interview guests from McGill's faculty, staff, and student populations, asking the questions that students want to know the answers to. 

Our second season looks at building community. We talk to the students and administrators who are fostering connection across campus. How do you make friends? What are some ways to find your group? And how can we work together to make sure our campus is welcoming and accessible?
