Are you planning on joining the Grimshaw club? Any idea if the club is dominated by "communists"?

Anabelle, you won't have time to join all of them. Consider a few of those from the list.

I won't stop dancing, so I found that the Modern dance soc would be ok. I'll be doing the LLM, so the law will be related to my career. I'm jewish, so it'd be nice to be in the jewish soc. and I'm a libertarian and would love to go to some of the meetings of the Hayek soc.

I also love philosophy (taught it for one semester) and litrature and art (have a law and art postgraduate course). And I'm from Latin America, but if I don'0t feel homesick I can leave that out.

I'll star with the ones above and see how it goes, I think. I also have more interests... But I also want to have good grades and work if I can...

I'm used to doing lots of things. I was doing 3 postgraduate courses last semester... And the one before that I was working, doing 6 subjects and writing my thesis.

Do you have to attend every meeting of every society or if you have to hand in a paper you can miss it?

I was thinking about the first four. Maybe I can cross out the Jewish society...

I'd say that even 4 would be pushing it. Especially if you want to go out and stuff. You really want to be in a society for Jewish people, for example? I'd say that would be worth a miss.

Also, joining the society for your course? Don't you think once you've done the work for it all day long you'll want to do something different with your leisure time?

But yeah, don't overburden yourself. Hayek soc sounds like it'd be worth actually being a member of for the content of the meetings, rather than the 'oooh we have something in common' factor. Same with philosophy, literature and art. I'd stick with some of those (but still, 4's a lot :p: ).

The Hayek Society is considered to be the most intellectual society at the School.

I'm not enough of a classical liberal for it, but it'd be interesting stuff occassionally. Do you know if you can just turn up without being a member?

Yes, i've seen the site and joined the mailing list. I've been attending libertarian seminars for a long time. I admire Hayek himself and of course Nozick and many more...
I don't drink, so going out, maybe to the theater, ballet or to dinner. But that won't be much. I'll see...

What's wrong with being a member? You don't have to attend all of the meetings, just turn up to the ones you're interested in. Not sure whether you can turn up occassionally, does the website say anything about this?

True, I think I'd be out of place though... I'm far more Mill than Nozick

And not that I could see :confused:

haha you all think anabelle's list is too long... well this is my list:

- Business
- Finance
- Investment
- Law
- Capoeira
- Modern Dance
- Model United Nations
- International
- Arts
- London Out

I would say the last 3 on my list aren't too much of a time killer. They're just alternate ways of socialising that would be done once a week (max.) or less. For example, I don't think the Arts society are going to offer discounted theatre tickets every week. Probably 4 or 5 times a term, if even that. So when they do it'll be good to get hold of them. Furthermore it's not like you have to go to every play.

Also, like Anabelle, I don't drink so these alternate ways of socialising that the International, Arts and London Out society provides appeal to me and is a good way to meet people in a different setting apart from the pub.

Anyway enough of my ranting. What is everyone else going to join?

No idea. In truth, I don't think I'll spend too much time going to society meetings anyway.

To be honest with you, most people aren't that bothered about societies. You'll probably find that when you arrive, you're more interested in other things. You might partake in perhaps one or two socs, but probably won't have time to pursue any more.
