Social Events

In addition to Model UN, the Carleton United Nations Society is thrilled to provide events that will give members the opportunity to connect with fellow Ravens outside of committee sessions. We want the society to be a place of networking and friendship building in addition to learning.

Some of our regular events to look forward to include:

  • Starting the year off with drinks and dancing at our In-House Social.
  • Bring out that competitive fire during a Laser Tag excursion.
  • Showing off our membership’s creative side with MUN’s Got Talent.
  • Spending an evening together for a great cause through Carleton’s Relay for Life.
  • Providing an opportunity for members to dress to impress at our annual UNS Gala.
  • Relaxing social events such as a board games night, skating on the canal and museum visits.

The UN Society is committed to giving members a fun, inclusive social experience for the entirety of each school year.

Academic Programming

Throughout the year, the United Nations Society also runs a variety of academic events for our membership and the Carleton community as a whole. These events cover a wide range of topics related to international affairs.

Some highlights of past years have included:

  • The UNS Speaker Series – Come out and listen to respected academics and public servants speak about their experience/expertise (past speakers include Dr Victor Rabinovitch, fmr. CEO Canadian Museum of History, and Jean-Paul Ruszkowski, CEO of the Parliamentary Center).
  • Embassy Visits – Throughout the year there will be ample opportunity to visit embassies around the Ottawa area, whether in preparation for a conference or general interest.

The United Nations Society is thrilled to offer wide and diverse programming events throughout the school year. Should you have any ideas for an event, email
