Social Events


Social events are great opportunities to meet graduate students from other disciplines. We aim to foster collaboration through these regular social experiences.

The iGSN hosts regular social events, including pub nights, BBQs, term parties, and game/trivia nights. Sign up for our monthly newsletter and join our Facebook group for updates on upcoming social events.

Upcoming Events

iGSN Winterdisciplinary Party


Sign Up Here


You asked for another big mixer, you wanted it, and you have been waiting for it.
Ladies, gents and others, brace yourselves for our Winterdisciplinary social!
This year, we are going with an “ALL IN BLACK” dress code, with some add-ons available at the event (surprise surprise, come and see 😉 )

Come mingle and play BOARD GAMES with your favorite interdisciplinary group on campus. As always, we will feed you (for free) and provide some of those sweet derivatives of ethanol that keep you warm in the winter (at a low price).

Bike the Seawall with iGSN


Vancouver summer would be incomplete without a ride around the Stanley Park Seawall. This summer, the iGSN hosted its annual ‘Bike the Seawall’ event on 19th August. It was a perfect afternoon to ride along the seawall with our fellow graduate students, enjoying the spectacular views of the North Shore mountains and Lions Gate Bridge. After the bike ride, we also enjoyed some delicious sundaes and blizzard treats at Dairy Queen. 
The iGSN would like to thank everyone who attended our August events and made this summer an eventful one. We look forward to meeting more graduate students in our upcoming events.

Summer Beats and Gelato with iGSN


We met at D’oro Gelato for some treats before heading to the free Salsa Class offered by Dancey Studio at Robson Square. It was fun to learn the basic steps in a welcoming environment, and we had a good time practicing some of the moves after the lesson.

 While a few iGSN members showed up, it was fun to meet students from other schools and young professionals who heard about this event through social media, and came to enjoy the afternoon with us.

Thank you for blowing up some steam with us on the dancefloor, and thank you to Dancey Ballroom and Dance Studio for organizing this annual dance series. Until next year!


Back to the beach with iGSN  (July 29, 2017)


A beautiful day to get on water and enjoy the views from the kayaks. iGSN members from many backgrounds ranging from medicine to various engineering disciplines to food sciences joined us for delicious burgers, Frisbee and beach soccer. While the day ended with some magnificent fireworks, the event ended with iGSNers wanting for more.
