Clubs & Societies

 

*Clubs & Societies listed below will be updated in September once all constitutions have been received*

Student clubs and societies reflect the diversity of student interests within our campus community and are great way to get involved! Many, like the Physics Society, Commerce Society, and French Society, relate to specific fields of study. There are also many others that focus on social issues, interests, or athletics, such as Ultimate Frisbee, creative writing, SMILE, or Global Brigades. A full list of our MASU-registered clubs and societies is available below.

Don’t see a club you like? Start your own! Simply fill out a constitution form and bring it in to the MASU office. Once your club or society has been approved by Council, you’ll receive all sorts of benefits from the MASU: funding, free spaces, bookkeeping services, and more!

Conduct Becoming

conductbecoming@mta.ca

 

In March 2001 the Conduct Becoming: Voices Against Cancer organization, comprised entirely of volunteers, released their first professional quality album on the campus of Mount Allison University in Sackville New Brunswick. The album was intended to be a way of showcasing the quality and diversity of the Mount Allison student music scene. The CD featured pop, hard and soft rock, folk, blues, alternative, swing, celtic and much more. All of the tracks were entirely original and written and performed by student musicians. The album was a huge success on campus and quickly developed a fan base eager for more top quality tracks from their peers.

Conduct Becoming has since grown to reach out to emerging artists as a platform for artist development while still holding true as a supporter of Canadian cancer research. The project has helped launch the careers of many local East Coast musical talents including Mike Allison, In-Flight Safety, Jon Epworth, and Allison Lickley.
