Spark is a service provided by the McMaster Students Union (MSU) that supports first-year students throughout their transition to McMaster University. 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-year 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 lifelong friendships.
