About us

The Science Students’ Association is the governing federated body for all 4000+ undergraduate Science students at the University of Ottawa. From academic representation to social events, we strive to meet the needs of our undergraduate students. Our Association is comprised of 12 Executive Members and 21 Department Representatives, with 3 additional Executive members during the summer months. Many of our members sit on Faculty Council where they partake in important decisions concerning programs and courses, voicing the interests of the students they represent. We also work in collaboration with many other associations and organisations on campus to deliver the best student experience possible.

Our executives work hard during the summer to raise money for Shinerama, a national philanthropic campaign to fight cystic fibrosis, while planning the largest 101 Week across all fed-bodies. We work closely with the Faculty of Science to bring administrative and academic information to your attention. We throw social events, bring in guest speakers, throw the annual Science formal and are completely student-run.
