For many first year students, the transition to university is overwhelming. Spark exists to support first year students throughout their transition to McMaster. Spark offers a weekly mentorship program, as well as social events, workshops, and online resources. The Spark Mentorship Program strives to connect small groups of first year students with upper year mentors for weekly sessions that cover a wide range of topics and activities. The program will not only help first yer students build a stronger peer support network, it will also introduce participants to a wide range of involvement opportunities. Ideally, Spark will help first year students connect with other students, learn about campus resources, and build life long friendships.
