Hi Society!

So, what are the benefits of joining?

  • Friends for life – make new friends outside your usual circle who all share the same interests.
  • Build confidence – Take a chance, sign up and try something new.
  • Stand out from the crowd – Having a hobby makes you interesting and unique to future employers.
  • Break from your studies – spending time doing something you love is the perfect way to de-stress and relax.

Here is just a snapshot of some of the fantastic societies available to you:

A.C.E (Anime, Cosplay, Entertainment)

Think video game nights, anime movies, cosplay crafts and warhammer! This is a group of nerdy, crafty, silly people sharing their passions in an open and welcoming space.

What could be better?
