    Way too many!

    Within my college, I run our theatre company and nail art society. I also sing in two choirs, help out on our welfare committee and broadcast society, and occasionally play rounders as well. I'm also one of the people responsible for overseeing the running and organisation of college societies as a whole.

    Within the university, I set up/run our kink society, and also do swing dancing and some wider student theatre.

    Plus a couple of volunteering projects. And some additional roles within college.

    ...help?

    Anthropology and Sociology. Third year. The answer is I have absolutely no idea! I'm lucky in that I always seem to work best at the last minute, so as long as I can shut myself away two days before a deadline, I can get everything done and do as well as I'd like. I think that's what tends to make it easier on me.

    I love swing/lindy hop! I'm really hoping that where I move after university will have classes. I've already located some in my home town, so that's a good start. I'd really miss not being able to do it!

    I'm on a lot of random mailing lists but the only ones I'm part of are the UKIP society, the Concert Orchestra (On committee as well), the physics society and the astronomy society and I'm also on the college committee as well. Might look into joining another few as I have too much free time on my hands

    As an engineering student. Where the hell are these societies at my college! . Only met one other guy who has remotely similar interests to me, Only met him since I walked past him disasembling his BMW in the college car park lol.

    The closest thing we have is a drone society which I really didnt find very interesting (less building more flying RC toys around)
