Society Spotlight: UCD SciSoc

This is a sponsored article

The UCD Science Society is one of UCD’s largest and more interesting societies, offering science aficionados the opportunity to mingle with like-minded students in the various events they organise. The most impressive one is their headline-grabbing ‘Scicle to Galway’, where students and staff cycle over 200km from Dublin to Galway, all in an effort to fundraise funds for Crumlin’s Medical and Research Centre. Elsewhere, SciSoc also organise a glamorous annual ball, which was hosted in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire last year.

Other smaller events include their famous weekly ‘Co-Fe Mornings’, where students are paired with mentors over a coffee and get a chance to learn from and mingle with each other. The society also has movie nights and game nights, so there is no shortage of choice for its members.  

 

Aside from these. SciSoc host guest speakers that could be of interest to science students but also the wider student population. Speakers cover each stream of science, though this year there will be an emphasis on speakers from the Biopharmaceutical fields. Keep an eye on their                social media channels if this is of interest to you!  

SciSoc donate all of their profits to various charities, which can’t be said for all societies. So, when you’re downing their coffee and munching treats on game nights, you can rest assured that your contribution is going to a good cause! 

To finish off, we will leave you with a few words from the SciSoc Auditor Paddy Donlon on what the overall aim of the society is; ‘’The society creates a space for all Science students to interact and learn from each other, as well as providing them with many ways to take a break                  from the typical Science student’s hectic timetable”.
