What do our previous society members have to say?
“Societies are a great way to meet other like-minded people who share the same interests and is a great escape from your studies!” – Maddalena, Women in Engineering Society and Art Society
“Being in society, with people sharing same interests as you, you can meet friends for life and make unforgettable memories.” – Gabriela, Pole Fitness Society
“It allowed me to make so many more friends with similar interests than if I had just tried to find people who were on my course!
We get to do activities together and play all the games we all know and love without having to explain how they work or be worried that someone won't like the hobby, as it's the reason we're in the society. If someone is ever unsure or more new to a hobby but they really want to get into it, a society is literally the perfect place to try looking into since it'll be full of like-minded people with all sorts of experience levels.” – Agata, Tabletop Society
