MacKenzie House

Good Spirit. Good Times.MacKenzie Student

“Lucero Non Uro” (I Shine, Not Burn) is the motto of the Mackenzie Clan of Scotland that MacKenzie House has adopted to show their Scottish pride.  The annual House charity event is the Caber Toss. Held each October, MacKenzie’s Caber Toss is a version of the traditional Highland game where participants throw a large tree trunk and have it land as straight as possible. One of the most popular events in MacKenzie House is the annual Newfie Night Social, where the house celebrates the maritime culture of Newfoundland.

MacKenzie House residents appreciate different traditions and cultures. They’re known for being athletic, social and creating long-lasting friendships. Sound like your kind of place?
