SOSCIETY is the student representative body of the School of Social Sciences (SOSS).
Founded in 2004, SOSCIETY aims to inspire and unite students together to reach ambitions and hopes for the greater society. Founded on the ideals of fraternity and harmony, SOSCIETY has made a name for itself in cultivating a strong Social Sciences community in SMU and as a conduit for the interaction of all Social Sciences students - past, present, and future.
Join us and be part of a family that is extremely motivated and passionate to serve the school. We plan for events that cover a wide spectrum of student life, from social, community service, academic and alumni networking.
- Welfare drives
SOSCIETY holds free welfare drives twice a year in the form of foodstuffs and beverages to encourage SOSS students during critical periods. Each welfare drive is carefully thought out, to ensure that the student body receives the support they need.
- SOSS Freshmen Orientation
SOSCIETY Camp is an orientation camp to welcome incoming Social Sciences freshmen into the SOSS family. With fun games and friendly facilitators, the 3 days is the perfect opportunity to foster lasting bonds with fellow Social Science students.
Raising Awareness Talks: Raising Awareness is a sharing by external organizations to impart knowledge on Singapore’s social issues. SMU students gain the opportunity to learn more about the issue and find opportunities to help the vulnerable.

OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
DO I NEED TO AUDITION TO GET INTO THE CLUB?
No, however an interview is required to get into the club as an associate. The interview to be able to get to know the individual and their interests as to why they want to be a part of SOSCIETY.
If students are interested in taking up a leadership role in SOSCIETY and be part of the management committee, students can participate in the elections where they will be brought through a process of campaigning, voting, and internal elections to vote on their office positions.
"Being in SOSCIETY has been a great time working with like-minded people who are dedicated to serve the Social Sciences students. But it is not just all work and no play, where we do fun bonding activities such as game nights planned out in the summer break to do together.”
