Natural beauty is McMaster University! It abounds in and around our campus. We are blessed with a treasure of waterfalls, valleys, meadows, wetlands, and forests to explore and discover. The beautiful environs of West Hamilton are one of the primary reasons McMaster located here almost ninety years ago.
Nature@McMaster’s website offers the McMaster and Hamilton community free access to information on local trails, natural areas, and information on the McMaster forest.
The Student Wellness Centre provides a range of services including counselling and medical care. What you may not be aware of is that the SWC also offers programming in a wide variety of health and well-being dimensions. These programs include Food For Thought (Cooking Classes), Managing Your Emotions, and Grief Support.
