Life After Mac

As your time at McMaster winds down there are going to be a lot things swarming around inside your head. What am I going to do next year? How do I get a job? Do I want to go to grad school? While we don't have the answers to these questions, we definitely want to help you find your way after Mac. This program offers graduating students have everything they need to succeed in their final semester at Mac and also once they have graduated. There is career advice, networking, mentorship opportunities, and, sometimes, it is as simple as a drink with some friends to unwind heading into the final stretch.


Student Relations Committee

There is an abundance of opportunities at McMaster for students of all backgrounds to get involved. Although the variety of programs, events and organizations is a good thing, it can be overwhelming to search through them all to find the right one for you. The Student Relations Committee is a collaborative effort between a variety of different University Departments and Student Organizations to find new and exciting ways to engage students. Throughout the year we will not only plan exciting events and activities, but we will also send out regular newsletters informing students of all the opportunities at McMaster for students in all areas.

Grad Class Gift

The Grad Class Gift is a student-lead project that encourages graduating students to make a financial contribution to McMaster in their final year of study, in addition to educating students about the importance of alumni support and the impact it has on the university. In making a gift, students leave their mark on McMaster by contributing to an important faculty or department project, while honouring those who made their experience great.
