    The History and Strategic Affairs Society (HSTA, formerly HISSOC) is the place to be to engage your interest in global and local affairs. Lauded as one of the oldest CCA in the books, the Raffles History and Strategic Affairs society is not just the wittiest, but also the coolest of the bunch. Donning snappy suits and dresses, be ready to be trained for and participate in competitions known as Model United Nation (MUN) Conferences, where you concoct plans of world domination and pit them against other brilliant minds around the globe.

    As a competitor, you will pick up many useful skills, ranging from the ‘hard’: legalistic principles about international law, order and justice, to the ‘soft’: how and what makes people talk. You will definitely become a more thoughtful individual, one who’s engaging to others and engaged around the world.
