McMaster Students Union


The Maroons are a unique MSU service that works to connect the undergraduate student
population to the McMaster Students Union and the greater McMaster and Hamilton
communities. As representatives of the MSU, we provide students with information,
opportunities, and resources to get involved with the various services and businesses within the
MSU. We aim to be the carriers of Marauder spirit on campus, and within the community,
through the promotion and organization of events to express school pride and unity, including Welcome Week, fundraising, athletics, intramurals, and more!

The McMaster Students Union (MSU) acts as the official voice of the undergraduate students of McMaster University. Today, that voice is being amplified as the Maroons form that connection between the MSU and the general student body. The enthusiastic leaders that make up the Maroons Rep Team act as individual spokespeople for the MSU and help to promote all the incredible services it offers. These reps aim to exemplify what it means to be a MAC student – a student with initiative, drive, energy and lots of spirit.

One of the most fun and exciting ways to get involved with the Maroons is through our
intramural sports teams! Each semester, the Maroons run intramural teams for a variety of sports that any undergraduate student can participate in free of charge! To get involved with the Maroons’ teams, check our Instagram @msu_maroons for updates, or reach out to with questions and to join our intramurals emailing list.

The Maroons team selection process occurs each Spring for the following academic year. Generally, our hiring process consists of two steps:

1. Written Application –This is a questionnaire that ensures that you have a sound
understanding of the Maroons and what they are all about. This will also be your
opportunity to outline where/how you have been involved with the Maroons and campus
life this year: committees, events, etc.. It will include situational questions, general
knowledge and more!

2. Interview– Upon successful selection from the written application, you will be invited to an interview. This will be your opportunity to demonstrate approachability, energy,
enthusiasm, teamwork, and how you handle situations on the spot.

Openings will be promoted on Instagram @msu_maroons and are posted in the employment section of the MSU website. Please check out the jobs page to apply!
