Hey McMaster!

The Student Wellness Centre would like to wish you their best during this confusing time. Our mental health wellness outreach team is excited to introduce their upcoming initiative: MacSecrets!

MacSecrets is an anonymous campaign that allows students to have an outlet to share their emotions, struggles, and advice. The goal of this initiative is to show students that they are not alone and give them a place to safely (and anonymously) share their feelings.

We welcome you to check out the submission link https://cutt.ly/macsecrets. Submissions to be shared must be submitted by November 19th at 11:59pm.

Over the next couple weeks, we will also be showcasing different submissions from members of our team. We hope that this will give you a better understanding of what MacSecrets really is, and what an initiative like this strives to do. So, stay tuned!

Eating meals together is an important part of our everyday lives, providing a chance to connect and spend quality time with others, share food traditions of different cultures and generations, explore new foods, and meet new people.

The pandemic and school may leave us eating alone more often. Join our Zoom Dine In’s with the food literacy team to eat with others (virtually), engage in conversation, meet new people, and learn more about the student wellness centre and food literacy. It is meant to be a low-key event for students to drop-in as they wish for some virtual company.

There will be music, conversation, and sometimes activities like Kahoot or scribblio! We’re looking forward to the start of Zoom Dine In’s and hope to see you all there!!

Register for Mondays 1:30-2:30pm EST or Tuesdays 9:30-10:30am EST
