MCSS, McGill Chinese Students' Society is the largest and most influential cultural student organization in Eastern Canada. With over 15 events per year and 40 years of history, we provide a variety of events to our over 1,500 active members and help our members succeed in school and life. Our short-term goal is to provide our students with valuable events to make their student life more meaningful, while our long-term goal is to motivate and encourage our students to give back to their community and excel academically by providing them with helpful services including seminars, lessons, and talks.
MCSS is a non-profit organization registered under the Students' Society of McGill University. All our proceeds either go to charity or are used to provide our students with more valuable services. Our events range from largescale shows to career planning and information seminars. In addition, we organize dinner outings, networking opportunities and parties for our members.
🌞This January, prepare for a second heat wave of record proportions: MCSSxMANABA is bringing summer back with Snowsheaga 2018!🌞
For THREE DAYS AND TWO NIGHTS, McGill’s hottest Asian clubs are making the hills a-lit with the sound of music, and this is your chance to forgo Redpath for the snow path. Forget your philosophy classes, the only question that matters is tube or not tube.
Headliners include: MANABA’s famous Beer Pong Tournament, tubing, an INDOOR WATER PARK, TWO NIGHTS of All You Can Drink (it’s not hot chocolate—but hot chocolate will also be making an appearance), and of course, the wild slopes of Mont-Sainte-Anne.
