Spark is back and ready for another year!
What is MSU Spark?
Spark is a service provided by the MSU that exists to help first-year students thrive during their transition into McMaster University! They offer tons of workshops, online resources, and even a mentorship program that is specifically designed to help university success.
How Does It All Work?
As a first year student, you will be placed into a small group and paired with two Team Leaders, who are upper years! Your group will then meet weekly during the semester and engage in a variety of different activities consisting of skill-building and interactive sessions. Additionally, each session will have specific lessons to take away from. Some of these include dealing with stress and improving time management!
How Long Does Spark Go On For?
Spark runs for 10 weeks, with each week exploring a new activity!
