Welcome Home, DeGroote: A Welcome Week ’22 Recap

September 1, 2022 | Hamilton, ON
Contributed by DeGroote Greensuits

Welcome home, DeGroote! The newest cohort of students at DeGroote brought vibrancy and excitement to the McMaster University campus during Welcome Week ’22.

Incoming students received a transition and orientation experience to help get them prepared for university life. Our familiar group of upper-year students in green jumpsuits, known as the Greensuits, were instrumental in shaping the experience for students. The first in-person Welcome Week for many, they brought unparalleled energy to the week.

When surveyed, the incoming cohort told us they were most looking forward to meeting new people. We’re happy you’re with us and we’re so glad to meet you!
