Core Executive Team

The core executive team makes up the heart of the MSSS, and are the governing body of our student society. 

Composed of the president and vice presidents of administration, finance, academics, programming, and external affairs, our executives ensure that all of the services and events provided by the MSSS continue to run as efficiently as possible as well as bring about new initiatives. 

Furthermore, the executives are a source of communication, always open to the wishes and needs of undergraduate social sciences students at McMaster University.

About Me

Hi, my name is Maryam Denno (she/her) and I am in my third year of Social Psychology. I’m also getting a business studies certificate. My favourite thing about McMaster is the sense of community. Everyone is so friendly, ready to help, and is so proud to be a Marauder. A fun fact about me is that I’m terrified of butterflies and a hobby of mine is playing frisbee! Feel free to contact me about any of the MSSS’ social events or if you have any questions or concerns about our upcoming events!
