Joining or creating a society is a great way to become involved on campus and can be a very rewarding experience. The process is very simple. The MSVUSU encourages any interested individuals to start a society and we’re here to help you along the way!
All Societies are eligible for funding from the MSVU Students’ Union, apply for funding by filling out an application!
If you don’t see any clubs or societies on campus that interest you, we encourage you to consider starting your own.
If you have any questions about how to get involved, please VP Communications: firstname.lastname@example.org
Societies must reapply and be approved each year, so we have not gotten a chance to look though and approve new and old societies.
Here are some examples of past societies that may return.
