    Out of my housemates, only one other is in a society, and that's the football team so she finds this rather strange as her 'meetings' involve training and matches and socials involve going to night clubs and bars ... Anyway ... My society meets up on Thursday evenings and we have talks related to our society given by lecturers at the uni, other unis or last week we even had someone from the British geological society give a talk. Quite a few lecturers turn up to these. Plus after the talk, we go to a local pub, including a q&a with the person who gave the talk. And quite often we have rather random and/or in depth conversations with the lecturers. Is this strange ? My housemates think it is !

    I know of a society that does something similar (though not all of the speakers are lecturers). It's not normal stuff for societies, but it's far from unheard of.

    Only about half of our speakers are lecturers and the style of the talks is completely different to a lecture. I don't know of any other similar society at my uni that has talks then goes to the pub (with lecturers). Although my mum went to uni (in her 40s) and said she went to the pub with lecturers a few times.
