    I think 3. My country's society, the LGBT soc and a sports soc (looking at aikido).
    I'm also looking forward to joining Aikido! It'll be something new and cool to do but I don't like pain, what to do?


    I'm looking to join 3-5 societies. So far I have: Aikido, Badminton, Anime and a cultural one probably, not sure though

    I did far too many...

    College level:
    Welfare Committee
    Choir
    Chamber Choir
    Theatre (including being President and Community Officer for a year and two years respectively)
    Media Society
    Rounders
    Nail Art (including being President for two years)
    Scholarly Journal

    University Level:
    Swing Dance
    Anthropology
    Applied Social Sciences
    Kink (including being President for one year)
    Student Productions (film-making)
    Theatre
    It Happens Here
    LGBTa

    This is all in addition to two regular volunteering roles and other positions held within college that weren't linked to any specific society. Not all of the above were huge commitments, but they took up plenty of time all together!

    And about my degree? I still graduated with a 1st..

    Please tell me you got a kickass job after uni.. This type of time management skill is bloody impressive, and is exactly what employers look out for.

    I'm actually starting a PhD in October straight from my undergrad! Though hopefully after that employers will still be interested should I wish to enter the world of work rather than academia.

    Thank you! Really, I just have a lot of interests and the knowledge that I produce my best work under pressure, which means that unless I have an assignment due in <3 days, I've got mostly free time. And I've always just been keen for stuff, so if it's there and sounds interesting and fits with my schedule as things stand, I might as well give it a go!

    I'd socialise ofc, but not on social events.
    Again, as someone else said, you will really miss out if you don't join at least one. Joining a society at my uni was probably the best decsion of my life so far.

    Let me make this easy for freshers. You will join many because they bribe you with vouchers/free food you might attend one or two a couple of times but in general you will get bored and say sod it.

    Oh ho ho. There's a **** ton of pain in the locks. But you're supposed to slowly lock and let go when the person taps anyway so it shouldn't be that bad. But be careful if you don't have a good partner.. I once nearly cried from the pain because my partner was really ****ing me up with sankyo.

    I'm planning on joining:
    Women's football
    Athletics (if I enjoy it during the 'trial period' which I think is the first 2 weeks - atm I run solo and don't compete so it would be a bit of a change in that for me)
    Either filmmaking or student media, but probably not both
