Buddy Program

NEW STUDENTS: Get paired up with an older graduate student to help you transition to Grad Life at McMaster.
RETURNING STUDENTS:
Help incoming graduate students learn the ropes by greeting them over email and supporting them as needed after they arrive! All you need is the experience of being a grad student for at least one semester. You will be matched with an incoming student via email; start communicating with them right away. Let them know what Grad Student Life is like, the best places to buy groceries, convenient housing locations etc.

Your Commitment:

– Email, phone/skype, or in-person communication with your buddy (negotiate with your buddy what will work best)

– Welcome them to McMaster and help to answer their questions (for a maximum of one term)

– You don’t have to know all the answers to be a buddy; there is a community to support you.

If interested, email Andrea in the School of Graduate Studies at gsevent@mcmaster.ca
