MEET THE SOCIETIES
Monique Cheng and Victoria Winslow
The McMaster Biology Society is dedicated to enhancing the university experience for all students in biology. The goal of the Biology Society is to plan academic and social events that enable valuable interactions between students and professors outside of the classroom. We are here to represent the opinions of biology students to the Department of Biology, and encourage all students to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns! The society is composed of an amazing team of students in various program specializations who are ready to support you in your undergraduate career.
