MEET THE SOCIETIES
Negar Asli and Sami Sabbah
The McMaster Undergraduate Society for the Chemical Sciences (MUSCS) is a Program Society made up of undergraduate students representing the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at McMaster. As a relatively small Level II specialization, our society strives to enhance the sense of community that exists within our cohort. We provide academic and social events to create space for students to take a break from their sometimes solitary laboratory projects, and build connections to foster academic and social wellbeing. With this coming semester comes new challenges but we are excited to use this as an opportunity for growth and provide more accessible resources to our cohort.
