University life

We invite you to make the most of your university experience by trying new activities, expanding your worldview and building your network of friends, mentors and community partners. Along the way, you’ll discover that there is more to being a student than classroom learning. 

Immerse yourself fully in university life when you cheer on the mighty Griffins, participate in a Black History Month drumming demonstration, travel abroad with the Model UN student club or volunteer for a cause you’re passionate about.

Cheer on the Griffins!
Pick up your free student tickets to all home games and cheer on the MacEwan University sports teams! Stay updated with the latest news, scores and schedules.

All of the experiences I’ve had during university have helped me be more confident in myself and in my work.

There's so much happening at MacEwan University. Visiting speakers, student presentations, Griffins games, theatre and musical performances, art exhibits, SAMU events—and so much more.

Join a club

Are you a lover of plants, movies or politics? Do you have an interest in history, acupuncture or the environment? The Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) is home to a wide range of student groups. Find out what’s on tap—and if you don’t see what you like, you can always start a student group of your own.

Volunteer at MacEwan

Get involved, get credit

The student experience record (SER) is an official document that lists the extracurricular activities you participate in as a MacEwan student, such as non-credit clubs, campaigns and committees. Bring the SER to a job interview or attach it to an application. It boosts your resumé and lets potential employers know a bit more about you. Learn more about this university-recognized, accredited document in the SER portal of MacEwanLife.
