FRESHMAN ARTS AND SCIENCE COMMITTEE
The Freshman Arts and Science Committee is a great opportunity for ArtSci first-years to become involved in student government here at McGill! Working alongside the ASUS VP First Year Affairs, this committee plans social and academic events and initiatives that aim to connect and enhance the freshmen ArtSci community. Those part of the committee will gain experience planning and hosting events, and have the opportunity to connect with the ASUS executive team and other ArtSci students!

ASUS EVENTS AND PLANNING COMMITTEE
Working alongside ASUS VP Internal and Executive Revenue Officer, the Events and Planning Committee plans social events for all ArtSci students.

ARTSCI BUDDY PROGRAM
The Faculty of Arts and Science Buddy Program pairs new ArtSci students with current ArtSci students based on major program. Mentors and mentees will connect primarily through emails/messaging, however small events may also be scheduled throughout the academic year for buddies to meet face-to-face. The Buddy Program provides new students with valuable information and insight on the McGill experience and resources available to ArtSci students.
Sign-up forms are now available for the Fall 2020 semester! Learn more here.
STUDENT ASSOCIATION OF COGNITIVE SCIENCE (SACS)
SACS is the Student Association of Cognitive Science at McGill University. Our goal is to provide prospective and current Cognitive Science students with information related to the program. Given the interdisciplinary nature of Cognitive Science, Cog Sci students may feel overwhelmed with how much the program has to offer. SACS aims to provide a bridge for students who wish to meet other Cog Scis within all five streams, promoting enriching relationships between students, no matter what aspects of Cognitive Science interest them .
Over the course of the year, we hold movie nights, Cog Cafe, Wine and Cheeses, and many more! Through these events and other initiatives, Cog Scis get the opportunity to meet students, mentors and professors in their program. This network building fosters long term friendships, guides students through their degree academically, supports students in finding research positions and ultimately helps Cog Scis start their careers post-grad.
