    No probs. PPE, tennis and skiing societies for sure, will probably try rowing as well.
    Probably being a bit thick, but what is PPE?

    Does anyone know what happens in the first couple weeks? Apparently there is no freshers week, but do you know what there is? I assume there won't be lectures day 1.

    Check the Physics page, there's a lot of useful info there. For us I think we need to go to the Physics lecture theatre at 10 am on Monday, and lectures start the next day.

    Also there is already work for us to do ;P

    Definitely gonna join the Tabletop Games and Role-playing Society, and probably the Computing one too. Past that, it depends on what some of the others actually seem to do - with some of thedescriptions on the site being pretty vague. Star Wars could be nice if it's just a group of people to relax with. Warwick Virtual Trading Society looks like it could be fun/interesting also. I'm not all too keen on sports, hence the lack of mention above - but I am partial to some Tennis or Badminton, so perhaps I'll try getting into that. You have any ideas which ones you might wanna join?
