We asked our Biology graduate student, Paul Naphtali, what would be his advice to students for the month of November? He responded, "as the semester begins to wind down, you'll have a lot of things on your mind, whether it be midterms or Christmas socials. The key to success in the home stretch is time management and a cool head. Everything will work out so long as you put the effort and allocate your time well. There's also nothing wrong with finding support groups too as surely there are many who struggle with the same problems you have."
If you need to connect with people come and visit us at the Chaplaincy Centre.
Youth Connexion (YC) met up again this past weekend for a discussion about growing up as part of 2 families. Incorporated into the the theme are games that build relational skills and a chance for the kids as well as volunteers to get to know each other. In the picture, Mac alumni Caleb and undergrad student Beth are leading a "minute to win it game." The Ecumenical Chaplain along with some McMaster students continue to deliver a social justice based program (YC) for youth grades 5 to 8.

The chaplaincy is a place for non-judgmental conversation, discernment and connection with others. We respond to the needs of the whole person and help students in the following areas: academic, faith/spirituality, relational, and with crisis situations.
Are you looking to share your thoughts with someone who will not judge you, will keep everything confidential, and can provide you with some advice if you want it? Our chaplains are here to meet with you! They are not university officials and they are always willing to listen and lend a hand.
