Clubs: science student edition

One of my personal goals before entering university was to get involved. I thought this would be an amazing way to make friends and be a part of something bigger. The clubs that I’m going to mention are ones that I’ve either been a part of or my friends have. 

Stem Cell Club

Stem Cell Club is the first club I’ve ever joined at Ryerson, so it definitely holds a special place near and dear to my heart. Our primary focus is to create awareness, educate and encourage individuals to sign up to become stem cell donors. Stem cells are very important because they have the ability to turn into many different types of cells, which can be beneficial to those in need. This is a great club to be a part of because you have the ability to save a life, and that feeling is unreal!

Association of Undergraduate Women in Science

I am a huge advocate for equality and recognition for women. Although I have not been a part of this club, I’ve attended events run by them. As a fellow woman in science, it’s so inspiring to hear success stories and learn about the journeys of other women in science. This is the perfect place to get in touch with your inner feminist to discuss important topics revolving around gender equality and the STEM field.

Science Society

This, in my opinion, is the heart connecting all of the science programs and clubs together. The Science Society runs social events, study workshops and provides a platform for you to connect with your professors. Joining this club will allow you to meet so many like-minded people, and help improves not only your own but also other students’ university experience. 

Biomedical Science Course Union (BMSCU)

If you ever run into any course-related problems then this is the place to go! BMSCU does an awesome job to help voice students’ concerns and advocate for us. Though not necessarily a club, the course union is a group of student representatives elected by students in the Biomedical Sciences program. If you are interested in joining, you can run for a spot on the union during your time in the program. This is a great way to get involved so you can be the voice for students in the program, and also run events to help everyone get connected with one another.

These are just a few of the science clubs that have stood out to me. There are so many others outside of the science field as well. 

 

I hope this upcoming school year you decide to take initiative and get involved!

That’s all folks.

“See” you soon!
