I didn't join any societies in my first year as I'm pretty shy around new people. I REALLY regret this so I was just wondering whether it's normal to join societies in your second year, or does everyone join in their first year? I know this may seem stupid but I've never been part of a society to know what it's like.
Yes yes yes join societies!! You can do it at any point during your degree and it is totally fine. In some ways I reckon it might be easier to do in later years because you're more established and generally more confident.

I dont think it is strange for someone not to join a society in the first year. I have not yet found one at my university and I'm going to start my own one in the second year so I can still have fun!
I joined my Uni's snowsports team in second year as it was something I had wanted to do in First year but never got the chance. They welcomed me as they would anyone and I had such a great time. Go for it!
