First Year Council (FYC)

Welcome to the McMaster Students Union First Year Council (FYC)

FYC is the unique representative body for McMaster first year students that serves to inform and speak for their distinctive needs and concerns. FYC is one of McMaster’s only institutions completely operated by first year students who are elected each fall by their peers. The purpose of the McMaster Students Union First Year Council or FYC, is to represent both current and future first year McMaster students, and to ensure that their issues and interests are addressed by acting as a voice, and as a guiding and informative body of resources. FYC membership is open to all full time first year undergraduate students or students who represent the interests of the first years at McMaster. Those students who are not in their first year but represent the interests of first year students are always welcome to participate.
