The University of Sydney Science Society (SciSoc) has been making sure that campus-life is as fun, exciting and vibrant as it should be for every science student at the University of Sydney since 1904. Today, SciSoc boasts over 5600 members, including undergraduate and postgraduate students, staff members and enthusiasts of science at the University of Sydney. Here is only a taste of the diverse range of activities that we have planned for 2016:
- REFRESHINGLY TASTY FORTNIGHTLY BBQs Every fortnight, SciSoc members will be fed with an all-you-can eat BBQ. Better yet, it’s FREE if you come dressed in your 2016 SciSoc T-shirt!
