Getting involved can decrease stress, expand your social networks, strengthen the learning you’re doing in class, open yourself up to new experiences, develop new or burgeoning skills, and increase your employability (assuming you want a job when this is all over). There’s so much to do and be a part of here that surely something will interest you and become your gateway into unforgettable experiences and networks. What’s more, many of your experiences on campus may be eligible for inclusion on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR), which is a great tool for helping you reflect on your outside-of-the-classroom experiences and prepare for applying for internships, graduate studies, jobs, and more.
CL&E's Engage McGill website provides an overview of the array of on- and off-campus opportunities available for students.
