math-Life balance

If you’ve ever sat in front of your computer grinding a problem set into the wee hours of the morning, I’m sure you’ve wondered: “”Can I have a life while studying math?””

On Wednesday, March 27th, 12–1:30PM, at Building 21, we’ll be discussing topics related to striking a personal balance between math and life, whether it’s your social life or other hobbies you are passionate about. This idea was inspired from the YouTube channel Math-Life Balance by Mura Yakerson.

Lunch will be provided!

Regular Events

Weekly Study Night

WEEKLY STUDY NIGHTS are BACK!!! ðŸ¥³ Come meet some friends, eat some snacks, and get your studying in, all at the same time!

We will have a fun theme each week! (This week’s theme is Ugly Sweaters!)

Join us on Mondays from 4PM–6PM at the SSMU University Centre (3600 Rue McTavish) on the 2nd floor in Room 202.

Snacks will be provided! If you have any snack suggestions, feel free to message us and we will attempt to procure them. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Peer Mentor Buddy

Are you a new student looking for some guidance in navigating the wide world of McGill? Or are you a McGill veteran looking to impart your hard-earned knowledge to the new generation?

Diversity in Math’s peer mentorship program connects new students with upper years to help build stronger connections within the department and pass down all those nuggets of knowledge gathered over time.

If you’re interested in becoming a mentee or a mentor, check out the links below for more details and to sign up to be paired! Applications are now open, and students will be matched on a rolling basis. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to DM us.
