Sciclones Chill Tent - Everyday except for Faculty Day (Aug 27), Shine Day (Aug 30)
Drop in by the Sciclones chill tent any time at BSB Field (look for the white tent and the black rep suits)! You can hang out with some Sciclones, ask them questions about school or just chat about life. There will be both bracelet and friendship making!

Come on out and meet some new friends in your program! We will all meet on BSB Field at 9:30 AM sharp where you will be split into your entry level programs (look for a sign with your entry level program). The morning portion of the day will consist of a mock lecture from a professor, who will talk about how to be successful as a university student and beyond as a graduate. There will be a fun tutorial game to get to know McMaster better, a science tour and lunch! The afternoon will be on the track field (in between Alumni Field and Ron Joyce stadium) with indoor activities being held in Sports Hall in DBAC. In the afternoon we will have a zumba class, a Wipeout themed obstacle course, carnival games, snowcones, a Bob Ross paint party, bracelet making and more!
