    Hey

    I'm going to be joining the rowing squad and they train up to 6 times a week which is fine by me, I was wondering whether with this level of commitment, I would be able to join a couple of other societies and still keep up with my degree? Ideally I would like to be training 6x a week and going to as many of the society nights and stuff that the societies do. One of them is a rock music society and the other is all about getting the most out of uni as possible going on various trips and nights out

    Rowing team train every day except from friday.
    On monday, tuesday, thursday at 6-8pm
    Wednesday- 1:30-4pm
    sat/sun at 12:30-3pm (Then changing to 7am-12 for seniors)

    I think it's more the case of whether you're going to feel up to going out on society nights out and stuff, because with that amount of training every week I would've thought that you'll be pretty knackered, especially with ensuring work is done...

    There's no reason you couldn't try doing the rowing for a week, see how tired you get/how much time you have, then join a society or however many you want, and see if you can fit in those nights out... As the year goes on, you then may want to cut back on something as work increases...

    Personally, I wouldn't try and do it all, but then I'm also relatively lazy

    It might be a little too much on your plate OP. I would just stick to the rowing if I were you, since you wouldn't want to be a "jack of all trades but a master of none".

    But it's only a suggestion though.
