The MacLaurin Society, or MacSoc as we are best known, is The University of Glasgow's Mathematics and Statistics Society.
The MacLaurin Society, or MacSoc as we are best known, is The University of Glasgow’s Mathematics and Statistics society. Named after the Scottish Mathematician, Colin MacLaurin, we have been around since the 1950s and despite a long 2-year gap due to covid, we are back and better than ever!
Our aim is to organise both academic and social events on campus that appeal to everyone. These events range from pub quizzes and fancy dress pub crawls to academic talks with potential employers and interesting talks about the research of our very own lecturers. We want to help you on your educational career paths as well as allow you to meet people on your course or just with similar interests. Remember you don’t have to be doing a Mathematics or Statistics degree to join!
Our membership is £3 and this will give you first access to tickets for socials, discounted events, members-only academic talks and access to exclusive MacSoc merch! This will all be given to you through a members-only Facebook group once you have joined.
Please keep a close eye on our socials for all our future events - including the big MacSoc x PhySoc ceilidh and our fortnightly board game afternoons!
