As an off-campus first-year student, you have access to mentorship and support through the Archway Program.
At the beginning of the year, you are paired with an Archway mentor who will be your go-to source of one-on-one support when you need it. Archway also offers events, workshops and socials where you can meet new friends and stay prepared for the school year ahead.
The programming is designed to help you feel connected and engaged with what’s going on at McMaster, and to help you connect with other students throughout the year. Archway also hosts signature events and programs that are open to all first-year students, like Mac101: Introduction to University Life, Welcome Week and more. These activities are a great way to stay connected to the entire first-year community.
