Coming to Mac in September? The McMaster Alumni Association has everything you need to get ready for university!


What better way to kick off your newly minted journey to McMaster than with your new best friend! Flat Mac is just that! He is your new cardboard buddy to help you join the McMaster community. When he arrives in the mail, be sure to check out the list of places to take pictures with him throughout the summer. Take the pictures and add them to your Instagram using #FlatMac for your chance to win awesome prizes in the fall. Be sure to click Add to Photo Map and make your profile public so that you can follow Flat Mac's adventures. Head to to check out other students' pictures in your area and around the world!



Mission2Mac is an orientation program for incoming and new McMaster students that are a little bit too far away to make a quick visit to campus. This program offers the chance to meet and interact with current students and alumni to help answer some questions you may have about coming to university in Hamilton. Through these social gatherings, incoming students are able to meet classmates and get a better understanding of what to expect in their new home. Be sure to keep an eye on your email to see if there will be a Mission2Mac event near you!


Welcome Week

The Alumni Association wants to make sure that all new members of the McMaster family have a great first week at Mac! You will see the Alumni team around throughout the week but one of our favourite events is taking the picture of all our new Marauders at the Macconnector. You get to fill in a giant stencil that spells our your graduation year with all of your fellow classmates and then we take a picture of all of you together to kick off your time at McMaster. Check out the other class photos below!
