The RES (Resources, Environment and Sustainability) Student Society is a student-led group that aims to enhance the grad school experience for all RES students. We organize social activities like Friday afternoon beers, barbeques and the annual Whistler trip. We also support edifying activities like field trips, seminars, and even RES sporting teams. The student society runs a Facebook page to help students connect, share helpful information, plan events, and generally foster our community spirit. We act as a liaison between the department and the outside world, representing student interests.
