The Macdonald Campus Students' Society represents the interests of all diploma (FMT) and undergraduate students of the Macdonald Campus of McGill University. Our offices are located in the Centennial Centre building.

Established in 1914, the MCSS has since been involved in all campus activities including both social and academic affairs, club coordination and doing whatever possible to influence University policies in ways that they may best serve the student body. As such, the MCSS is represented on dozens of McGill University committees and working groups.

The MCSS currently employs three full-time employees as well as a number of part-time positions, which are open to students of Macdonald campus. These positions include bar staff and office assistants. Financing for day-to-day operations depend mainly on student fees and bar and bookstore revenues.

Planning and policies are adopted and implemented by the 18 core members of the Students' Council. The council meets every two weeks. All students and staff are welcome to attend Council meetings.

The governing body of the MCSS is it's executive. All positions are open to Macdonald Campus students. Elections are held near the end of each academic year. Further information regarding the elections may be obtained along with nomination forms at the MCSS reception desk.

Student participation is a must in order for the MCSS to continue to operate. Students are encouraged to approach the MCSS with any questions or ideas they might have. Anyone who wishes to organize their own club or activity is also encouraged to approach the MCSS for both financial and administrative aid.
