Enrolling for Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Classes

Posted by Chad

Returning Students: Prepare to enrol in 2015-2016 fall/winter classes

This June McMaster students will register for their fall and winter classes using Mosaic. The switch to Mosaic brings several changes in the enrolment (registration) process, notably the introduction of Enrolment Appointments at assigned times.

Key dates to make note of:
  • Final academic standing for fall/winter 2014-2015 available week of May 19
  • Fall/winter 2015-2016 timetable released first week of June

Enrolment will continue to be organized by academic level, but within a level, students will be randomly assigned dates and times for Enrolment Appointments. Enrolment Appointments are located in the Enrolment Dates panel in the Mosaic Student Centre. Students will be able to view their personal Enrolment Appointment times in Mosaic approximately one week before their level is scheduled to begin course enrolment.

Not Everyone Likes You (and that's ok)

Posted by JaySpills

Everyone just wants to be liked these days. Liked by their friends, liked by their co-workers, liked by people on the internet, liked by their ex-boyfriend, heck - people even want to be liked by the stranger they just made eye contact with.

This is a big problem. When did we become so sensitive that we need the approval of everyone we interact with? When did we value ourselves so little that when others donít like us, itís our fault? When did we tolerate so much from everyone else just to leave a favourable impression?

I am going to tell you a secret. Most people wonít like you.

And itís perfectly fine. In fact, it's better than fine - itís something we need.

Stop for a second and picture all of the people that you are close to (this can be your parents, your siblings, your friends, etc.). This should...
