Nicole Agyei-Odame

Welcome! I’m Nicole, a Recruitment and Academic Advisor for the Faculty of Social Sciences. My role is to help you make a great transition to undergraduate student life in our Faculty. I also help ensure all of our Faculty’s international, Economics I and Health and Society I students have a positive experience.


I’m a McMaster University Honours Sociology graduate (2018). I also recently completed my master’s degree in Immigration and Settlement. Coming to Canada can be a very intimidating process, but I can help you feel at home on campus. I’m here to answer any questions you might have about life in Hamilton, courses or even how to prepare for winter. No question is too small!   


When you’re here, you can take part in special events to help you feel part of our community. Some of these events include:   

  • Personal check-ins
  • Level I study groups
  • Level II program choice workshops
  • Social activities
