FACULTY ASSOCIATION:

ISSS: Interdepartmental Science Students Society

As an Undergraduate student in the Faculty of Science, you’re automatically a member of the Interdepartmental Science Students Society! The ISSS (pronounced “ICE”) is an organization run entirely by students. They exist to provide useful services and fun events to the science community. This includes the provision of microwaves in science buildings, locker rentals, science-specific orientation, and other science community building events. They’re also the official voice of students to the Faculty of Science.
