Everything must come to an end. Goodbyes and farewells are always difficult to handle, and at RCSI Isoc we like to end our year memorably and when possible without too many tears. Over the course of Isoc history, we’ve developed a number of strategies to help minimize the events of emotional breakdowns, and their implemetation have shown a 99.7% response rate (p < 0.002).
Strategy 1 – End of Year Report
The end of year report is the dread of every ISoc secretary and treasurer. A compilation of summaries for the entire ISoc year, the end of year report serves to stress out secretaries and treasurers, occupying them mentally throughout the retirement process.
Strategy 2 – Food
Although a temporary precaution, the use of food in advertisement does improve students’ mood before the AGM (odds ratio = 8.3). This finding has been replicated in other events.
Strategy 3 – Nominations
There’s nothing like the thought of becoming the next ISoc president to make your hair stand. At AGMs, we have found that creating a tense atmosphere can effectively be used to reduce noise levels and can improve coping with heartbreaking occasions. It was further found that students who were nominated at ISoc AGMs were less likely to experience nervousness during exams.
ISoc Annual General Meeting - 27th February 2012
AlhamdulEllah this was a wonderful end to the ISoc year 2011-2012. Prior to the AGM, Isoc had an Iftar event, where brothers and sisters fasted voluntarily and broke their fast together at college.
After Maghrib prayer, the Annual General Meeting began. Committee members were brought on stage to discuss the year 2011-2012, and the presentation of past events was noth beautiful and nostalgic. All thanks to Allah, we have had a busy year. We pray that our work has been successful in terms of al akhira, and we hope Allah can accept our very small efforts.

AlhamdulEllah the new committee was nominated, and the list of new members for 2012-2013 has been updated here.
All success comes from Allah. This year, with Allah’s will, RCSI ISOC reached an outstanding achievement of winning 3 out of 5 awards given annually by the college.
1) Best Society Event (Charity Week 2011)
2) Best Society Person (Danah, al-Sharrah)
3) Best Society of the Year
As the year closes, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude and give the most heartfelt goodbyes to some great people who have contributed so much to ISOC in the years they have been here: Omar Bhutta, AbdulMalik Dredar, Muhammad Khidir Kamil, Safwath Nizar, and Huda Mansor. We pray for your continuous success, health, and happiness, and may Allah shower His Mercy and on you and your families. We would also like to welcome the new committee on board and pray for a fruitful new year2012-2013 filled with blessings.
