It supports students throughout their academic life in the AOS department and strives to improve students life.
To this end, CAOS organizes activities such as yearly summer barbecues and Christmas parties, game nights throughout the year and weekly happy-hour get2gether and coffee time. Furthermore, it promotes events like the departmental seminar series and Post-Graduate Students Society (PGSS) courses and invitations among its members.
As an officially recognized, autonomous student group of the PGSS of McGill University, the CAOS acts as a liaison with the association of all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at McGill
