MacEwan International programs

Student Mentors

Meet your mentor, a fellow student who will help ease the transition into MacEwan by guiding you during your first year on campus. Mentors have been MacEwan students for at least a year themselves and are happy to show you the ropes.

Student Seminars

Informative and fun sessions are held every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. We talk about culture, study habits, time management, financial literacy, taxes and being a new Canadian.

Tea Chats

Drop by for tea, cookies and conversation every Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. At these informal gatherings, you can meet fellow students, ask questions and get just the right start on your weekend.

Sports Buddy

Lift weights, run on the treadmill, go for a swim, stretch on the yoga mats. With the sports buddy program, a fellow student will introduce you to the Christensen Family Sport Centre where you can try your hand at something new or take your ability to the next level. Join us and see how an active lifestyle provides the perfect balance to your time in the classroom.

Badminton Club

Bat around the birdie while socializing with fellow students, developing your skill as a player and enjoying a bit of friendly competition. Whether you are new to the game or have plenty of experience, we want to see you on the court! Register at the Sport and Wellness Welcome Desk to join the club or check out the fun during our drop-in times.

Swim to Survive

Many Canadians enjoy swimming at local indoor or outdoor pools. In the warm months, we cool off by going for a dip in a lake, stream, river or spray park. We spend time on the water in canoes, kayaks and motor boats. If you are not a swimmer, but are curious about spending time in or near the water while you are in Alberta, we highly recommend that you take this safe and fun program. You will learn about basic water safety and feel more comfortable around the water. If you have are already an experienced swimmer, we encourage you to consider volunteering to help teach Swim to Survive.
