The ‘World University Service’ Society provides a space for all those who wish to work for the betterment of the Society, in whatever little way they can. It was instituted as a non- performing arts society in the Academic Year 2004-2005. Since then, it has aimed to spread awareness on a variety of issues, focusing largely on the Physical as well as Psychological health concerns of individuals. Along with spreading awareness, the Society is also involved in organizing blood donation camps and health check- ups. Movies are also screened regularly, as they are considered to be an effective way of imparting knowledge about such issues. Activities such as quiz competitions and events such as stage- plays are also other ways through which a number of issues are brought to the fore. We wish to dispel certain misguided myths and views and to address student problems on a larger platform.
Student Coordinators: Aritra Chakraborty, Devanshi Agarwal, Mehak Bhardwaj

The society started the academic year with the ‘Tale it up’ Competition requiring participants to complete stories whose beginnings were provided. The competition was organised in collaboration with the psychology department as part of their annual Mental Health Awareness Week.
The major highlight of this year was the Blood Donation Camp organised in collaboration with Blood Connect. The event was organised by the GTB hospital. This event turned out to be a huge success with the number of blood donations being 60% higher than last year.
The society organised the screening of a Ted Talk by Lizzie Valasquez in the assembly. It highlighted the need to be self-accepting and optimistic.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, WUS organised an enriching session with Dr Sunita Gupta, renowned gynaecologist currently working at Max Smart Super Specialty Hospital, Saket. Dr. Gupta spoke of the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS which is common among adolescent females. In the interactive session, Dr. Gupta candidly answered questions on contraceptive use, breast cancer risk and the effects of poor lifestyle habits.
