WHAT IS THE MSS?
The McMaster Science Society (MSS) is the primary connection between students in the Faculty of Science and the university itself. Formed in 1996, the goal of the MSS is to be the best undergraduate Faculty Society at McMaster by hosting exciting academic and social events, and providing useful resources.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
We run a number of small and large events throughout the year.
Notable events in 2017 and 2018 include Formaldehyde, the Science Musical, and I Love Science Day.
We provide a range of services for students in the faculty of science.
This includes a science lounge, tutoring, mentoring, and even our own web series, MacSci Minutes.
We strive to make your experience here at McMaster the best it can be.
We do this through the resources we provide, including scholarships, grants, and a course advice forum.
We are now responsible for representing 15 unique sub-societies in the facultly of science.
We provide funding for and respect the needs of each society.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hi, I'm Chris Simon, a fourth year iSci student and the current MSS President.
Just a few words to get us started.
I’m Chris Simon and am honoured to be your 2019/20 McMaster Science Society President. The MSS is the student representative body for undergraduates in the Faculty of Science. Throughout the year we strive to enrich your university experience by coordinating valuable academic support services, hosting exciting student outreach events, supporting program societies, and so much more.
The MSS is an student-funded, volunteer-run organization, with each science student contributing only about $27 per year. Please check out the #ChooseMacSci initiative on our website for more information about how and why you should support the MSS.
Whether this is your 1st or 5th trip around the sun as part of the MacSci community, we are here for you. This year will undeniably be a time of incredible growth and personal discovery, with many successes and struggles along the way. When you’re having a difficult time grasping concepts for classes, don’t forget about the MSS tutoring service filled with very knowledgeable students looking to lend a hand.
When you need a break from studying and homework come out to one of our many events - from Formaldehyde to the Bob Ross Paint Night to Quantum Leap, we have something for everyone. Also, don’t forget to take advantage of the services we offer - they’re all here for you! If you haven’t already, we’re active on Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat to ensure you get updates and information as soon as it comes out. For those seeking opportunities to get involved with the MSS, check out our Involvement Hub (https://www.mcmastersciencesociety.com/involvementhub) throughout the year for all the ways you can.
As you move throughout university, don’t be afraid to take risks and get involved. It’s definitely possible to succeed in university on your own, but it’s much more enjoyable, fulfilling, and easier to do so when involved with and supported by with your peers.
I can’t wait for all the opportunities this year will bring and actively contributing to the university experience of so many of you.
Stay tuned to our social media channels for updates throughout the year! #ThisIsMacSci
