Mature students and fresher's week in University of NottinghamWatch
There is more going on than just club nights, certainly. Most societies have try-it sessions and all of them are at the fresher's fair. Those will still mostly be the normal student age range but generally larger societies will have some mature students. I believe there is a Mature Students Network, which certainly seems like a good place to start.
Tom Leach is the Mature Students Officer this year, and has posted on The Mature Students Network facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/UoNMatureStudents/ that there will be a mature students meet up in the second week of term so join the Facebook Group for updates. Last year we had lots of events throughout the year including regular meet ups in Portland Coffee Co. and Mooch, also some events for families, so hopefully there will be lots going on. I'm sure Tom would be pleased to have suggestions and help organising events too.
