Government Society



Please log in to join this organisation.



Government Society (GovSoc) is the non-partisan, apolitical government society on campus. We aim to inform and educate through speakers, panels, workshops, debates, networking events, and more! We tailor our events and social to our members, so rest assured that your voice will be heard. We hold two events and two socials a month; half of our socials will be sober socials and half will be drinking socials to ensure that everyone has an opportunity and comfortable environemnt to get involved in, without any added pressure; politics is heavy enough as it is! Our goal is to help our members build a healthy foundation upon which to grow and prosper their own opinions and beliefs. All panels will hold a representative for every side of the topic at hand to guarantee a fair trial to the issues we tackle.
