Joining STEM Clubs!

Updated: Aug 20, 2020

By: Simone Miklosi


Signing up for courses is right around the corner! For many STEM first years there is not a lot of freedom in course selection, as the majority of courses are pre-selected mandatory classes. The first year in a STEM field can feel very general, and for me personally I craved learning about more niche STEM topics. Although, many courses in university do not specialize until second year STEM focused clubs are a great way to explore more niche topics and potential careers. Joining STEM based clubs also helps you find different groups of like minded people, and is a great place to make friends! Entering first year can be intimidating, but clubs are a great place to start to find where you fit in at your school! Although many of us are entering this new school year in a mixed, or full online format clubs are still a great way to connect! Many university websites often have easy to navigate club pages. The club pages often contain a club description and the club’s social media so you can get in contact with different members and see if any club positions are available for the new year. I have listed the links to different club pages for Ontario universities below, and I hope you take the time to check out the different clubs your new school has to offer!
