The best way to feel part of the Chemistry Department is to join MUNCS. It a good way to meet other Chemistry students as well as staff and faculty members. The society is run by and for Chemistry students and has its own room (C-1020) in the basement of the Chemistry/Physics Building. MUNCS is involved in organizing and participating in university events like open houses, mixers, and sports events such as softball. MUNCS is also the local student chapter of the Chemical Institute of Canada.
