Chronicles of a Mac Student


Aug 2018

There's officially less than a month until classes start! It's no doubt that this summer is going by quickly and although I never took part in the #inmyfeelings challenge that flooded Insta, the one thing challenging my feelings at the moment is the thought of going back to school.

Last week I attended Hamilton’s first Newcomer Day at City Hall. During the event, I had the chance to help out at McMaster’s booth which had a prominent spot in front of the Council Chambers where a Citizenship Ceremony was held, welcoming 35 new Canadian citizens from 15 different countries.

Recently while scrolling on Insta and seeing the SSC's #mcmasterhiddengems posts, I realized that I don't actually know where a lot of them are. I started thinking about the amount of time I spend on-campus and off-campus, and how much of my surroundings I haven't taken the time to appreciate - like this quote that I've walked by so many times! Leave a comment down below if you know where it is!

Feeling like this summer just isn’t living up to what you thought it would be? Do you keep asking yourself, “Where has the time flown???” It seems like it’s the tale of every university student and after being here for 4 years, I’ve become pretty accustomed to this feeling. It's amazing to think that in first year I thought having a four-month summer break would be too long. Now I think that it isn't long enough.

Hello Marauders! I’m Manveetha Muddaluru, the new Stories From the Arch blogger! I recently finished my fourth year at Mac and will be entering my fifth year this fall. I started off my undergrad degree in the Life Sciences program, but I am now pursuing a degree in Communication Studies. If you would like to know more about my undergrad journey so far, you can read all about it in my LinkedIn Articles on transitioning into university and what I learned during my process of changing programs.
