Mensa is a society for bright people whose IQ score is within top 2 percent of the population. The word "Mensa" means "table" in Latin. Mensa is a round-table society, where race, color, creed, national origin, age, politics, educational, religion or social background are irrelevant.
Mensa provides a platform where you can meet and interact with people with similar mind. As a member, you can choose to join any SIG (Special Interest Group) available within the society and meet people with similar interest! You can also get to know more friends around your neighborhood through LG (Local Group). What's more exciting is that you'll get the chance to meet with foreign Mensans through SIGHT (Service of Information, Guidance, and Hospitality to Travellers) programme whenever you travel abroad or someone visits us! Apart from that, we also have interesting events going on throughout the year.
