About Us

The Chemistry Graduate Student Society (CGSS) at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver strives to foster cooperation and interaction among chemistry graduate students as well as between students, faculty and staff in the Department. We host a variety of social events throughout the year, such as stressbusters, movie nights, scavenger hunts, BBQs and many more. Some of our larger events include the Welcome BBQ and Poster Session (September), the Annual Holiday Skits and Departmental Luncheon (December), and Valentine’s Day Candy-Grams (February). We also organize several bake sales to raise money for charity each year.

We encourage all chemistry graduate students to get involved by participating in our events and even joining our council. We strongly believe that grad school should be fun!
