Everyone seems to mess up the name, but it is the MMSS, Monash Marketing Student Society.
I will start by saying that I will no longer 'officially' be part of the club next year as being the real gen Y that I am, I followed the money and will be working for the student union next year.
At the end of my first year of uni I was studing for exams with a group of people of which i was only friends with probably one or 2. One of them was going to be the social director for the MMSS the following year and asked if we wanted to be on the sub-committee next year.
My initial reaction was one of "pft who the hell wants to be part of a crappy uni club" then about a second later i volunteered to do so.
Thus the process of getting involved was complete. The next stage was actually doing things for the committee, I learnt extremely quickly that it was basically a big family up there. Everyone wanted to help everyone with not just MMSS related happenings, but also with assignments and study and etc, everyone was extremely happy to help out.
That is the first part about why Uni clubs are so great. The simple social aspect of them makes it essential for everyone to try and get involved. The number of friends I made through MMSS has been amazing, and not just those directly involved, but meeting the friends of those in the committee, and the group just grows and grows.
