The McMaster Anthropology Society, or MAS, is a recognized and funded club at McMaster University, and it is our responsibility and mission to provide anthropology students at McMaster with the opportunities and tools they need to engage the anthropological community at Mac.

Some of our annual events include:
- Meet the Department, where students can meet the faculty in an informal setting

The PNB Society strives to provide students of all psychology backgrounds and interests with opportunities that facilitate networking and celebrate common interests. The PNB Mentorship Program provides an avenue for connecting new students and upper year students. The PNB Ambassador Program allows select students to be the liaison between different cohorts of the PNB program, and to aid in the promotion and carrying out of events. The purpose of the PNB Society is to provide resources to interested students not only within the program, but within the larger campus community that shares an interest in psychology as well. The goal of the McMaster PNB Society is to encourage students to make the most of all the educational opportunities the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour offers, and to become involved in social events and activities that create and enhance relationships between and within cohorts.
