For the past 10 years the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) Student Council has provided events and activities to help support and encourage young budding scientists. This article series, written by past and present student council members, shares some of the trials and tribulations of the ISCB student community. The articles are designed to document the progress of the Student Council, instruct others on what to do (and what not to) when planning activities, and encourage future generations of students to build and maintain a thriving student community.
