Mentors and buddies
Macquarie has a range of peer support programs to help you smoothly transition to university. During O Week, you'll find out about our 2 main ones: the Macquarie University Mentors, current students who you select from your faculty and meet at your faculty welcome; and the Buddies, a social peer group that runs many of the fun, local off-campus events throughout the year.
Your mentor will help you find your way around the campus, give you tips on how to make friends and settle into the Macquarie community, and you'll hear from them about once a week during your first session. The buddies will help you make friends, settle into life in Sydney and make sure you know about the variety of events and social activities that run throughout the year.
