The Chemistry Undergraduate Students’ Society

Serving undergraduate students in chemistry at McGill University

The Chemistry Undergraduate Students’ Society is a group of chemistry students elected by their peers with the goal of building a community for all undergraduates in the department of chemistry, by organizing both academic and social events and services. Make sure to check out everything we have to offer!

The Chemistry Undergraduate Students’ Society (CUSS) acknowledges that McGill’s Otto Maass Chemistry building is on the traditional territory of the Indigenous People, Kanien’keha:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-haa-ga). The Kanien’keha:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-haa-ga) are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

CHEM Med Talk

Hey chemists!
Are you interested in pursuing med school after your undergrad, or have interests in medicinal chemistry?
If so, I invite you to join former McGill Chem student and current McMaster med student James Abesteh as he hosts “A Chem in Med” talk this Wednesday, March 22 at 6 PM, where he discusses clinical considerations of drug design and how an education in chemistry can take you to med school!
