Here at ISoc, we know that studying at Cambridge can be very lonely and difficult, especially for our mental health. For this reason, we hold a variety of events throughout the term to help our members’ welfare. From getting an expert such as Aaliyah Shaikh to come and give advice directly to our memebrs or even just causal chills together, we care about the welfare of our members.
