About Frosh

FROSHTERS, INC is the 2020 Orientation Week for students entering the McGill Faculty of Science in the 2020-2021 academic year. Due to the McGill Fall 2020 semester being online, the Faculty of Science will also be moving Frosh to a virtual platform. When students register for Frosh, they're signing up for four days of engaging virtual events with the goal of introducing students to the McGill and Montreal community. Frosh will be dedicated to showcasing McGill campus and student life while helping students foster online connections with other McGill students in a safe and inclusive environment.

No matter where our froshies are this year they will have the ability to meet the McGill community, become comfortable with Montreal, and make long-lasting friends. With the guidance of over 120 Frosh Leaders (upper year McGill students who undergo intensive online skills and leadership training in preparation for Frosh), Froshters, Inc. is an incoming student's chance to experience what McGill has to offer. We are extremely excited to provide an experience that will be accommodating for all students. The Science coordinators, leaders, and community can’t wait to see you August 27th - 30th for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

Land Acknowledgment

The SUS acknowledges that McGill is on the traditional territory of the Indigenous People, Kanien'keha:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-haa-ga). The Kanien'keha:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. This island known as Montreal is known as Tio’tia:ke (Gio-Jaw-Gé) in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and has historically served as a meeting place for other Indigenous nations.

It is not enough to just acknowledge the keepers of this land and McGill’s status as a settler-colonial institution. Silence and inaction will only contribute to erasing the history, the culture, and the realities of Indigenous people. As such, it is important that individuals educate themselves on Indigenous matters and that they apply that knowledge to support Indigenous communities. The SUS should actively resist (neo)-colonialism in the many forms it takes, and in the diversity of forms that resistance can take.
