McMaster Chemistry Graduate Student Society

McMaster Chemistry Graduate Student Society


The MCGSS is a society for graduate students belonging to the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. The society’s main objectives are to make resources accessible for graduate students, host events and initiatives designed to provide entertainment and build comradery and to help develop a strong sense of community overall within the department. The MCGSS also exists to advocate for students and to be a communication medium between the graduate students and the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. During this time of COVID-19 we will be hosting regular online meetings such as our weekly virtual coffee Wednesdays, virtual games nights, as well as seminars and town halls designed to address student mental health and well-being in addition to providing opportunities for networking and career planning.
