NON - FACULTY
explore a non-faculty frosh!
Non-Faculty Froshes are open to any first-year McGill Students!
These are a fantastic way to meet people from every part of the McGill community!
Rad Frosh is an alternative orientation to McGill and Montreal for over 100 new students over 3 days (August 30th – September 1st, 2019)—jam-packed with parties, workshops, music, food, and more, it’s a fun and unique opportunity to check out local activist and community groups, get introduced to and learn about a wide range of social, environmental and political issues, meet fellow students and cool folks, and get the tools to make the most of your time at McGill and in Montreal.
Rad Frosh includes radical workshops, walking tours, concerts, and dance parties with a focus on social and environmental justice topics; from queer and trans histories and feminism, to anti-colonial, migrant justice, and people of colour struggles, to the Quebec student movement and anarchism, and has been an initiative of the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) at McGill for over twenty years. This year, Rad Frosh also features a huge Queer Prom, benefit concert, BBQ, and more!
Fish Frosh is a “dry” (non-alcoholic) frosh alternative to faculty froshes. While it is hosted by four of the Christian groups on campus, this annual collaboration
aims to welcome in all incoming McGill students, and we are proud to offer a week packed full of fun events that will make you feel comfortable no matter your religious background.
Every year, we strive to make Fish Frosh an accessible and affordable alternative by actively securing sponsorship and relying on the overwhelming generosity of our current McGill students. First years and other incoming students will have the chance to make meaningful friendships that last throughout university, explore Montreal’s culture and the activities of its city life, find community in strong and active organizations on campus, and begin their time at McGill on an incredible, memorable, and incomparably welcoming note!
Are you Jewish and looking for a welcoming community for (likely) your first Shabbat in Montreal? Jewish Frosh will be holding a Friday night service along with dinner, and a Havdallah service on Saturday. This is a great opportunity to meet other first year Jews, along with other members of McGill’s Jewish community. We’ll also be having other activities during the day on Friday and Saturday to bond as a group and explore Montreal! Our Friday night service will be non-denominational; however, we will do our best to accommodate everyone, and all food served will be Kosher.
New to McGill and Montreal? Searching for a great Frosh to start the year off right? Well look no further, the McGill Muslim Students’ Association has got you covered! Get ready to spend 3 days with the McGill and Montreal Muslim community, filled with fun and social activities like laser tag and a scavenger hunt (and much more)! This year, we are bringing to you unprecedented experiences through which you will learn to love the great city of Montreal, eat delicious halal food, and make lasting friendships!
McGill Outdoors Frosh is an alternative frosh option running from August 28th to September 2nd for those wishing to explore the wilderness surrounding Montreal.
There are 6 activity options:
- Whitewater Kayak
- Mountain Biking
Each option has a different location and focuses around their outdoor activity, and every option includes an overnight trip that takes you outside Montreal to the wilderness of Quebec.
All options except Whitewater Kayak (which requires a strong swimming ability) and Mountain Biking (which requires that you are comfortable on a bike) are beginner-friendly and all are about having fun outside and making connections to start off your university life.
