Just wondering what everyone does in their spare time when they're not knuckled down studying. Or if there are any odd ones you'd heard of?

I've joined quite a few, but find it quite hard to stick to them all. My main ones are videogaming (on committee), LawSoc Netball, Airsoft and Jiu-Jitsu

Ouch :lol:
Aye, I haven't had great experiences with band nights either haha. My uni's RockSoc was pretty decent but their band gatherings sucked, they all wanted to play a bunch of Deathcore stuff. Just wasn't into it.

Not at uni yet but I’m probably gonna join all so I can stop being so socially anxious and realise human beings won’t think I’m an evil witch and wouldn’t mind if I introduced myself

I created my Uni's Biological Society so was also its first President.

I'm also an Officer in a University Scheme Freemason Lodge. *conspiracy theories intensifies*

None. I went to the society thingy they have in the first week for about 5 mins to register with the uni which happened at the same time, but i just felt incredibly out of place. I didn't understand the purpose of them and still don't. I went to one event and it was jist a bunch of people discussing contemporary pop culture. Zzzzzz.

You do realise you have to pay for them and there's usually like 200 not like 10.

I don’t actually mean ALL. I wouldn’t join a maths society for free even if Ariana Grande attended
Probably the creative ones

Regularly go to the chilled-out non-auditioning orchestra :nopity: I'm on the committee
I organise events for the Chemistry Society e.g we recently did a charity bake sale which was nice :albertein:
try to go to Quiz society but usually end up going with orchestra to the Quiz + Curry every Sunday night :wink2:
I infrequently pop along to certain events by French Society, Tea Society, Archaeology Society (my housemates bring me :rolleyes: ) but my favourite pastime is going to the SU cinema to watch films for free/£3 :coma:

BTW I moved this thread to University life :fyi:

I was in my department's (Linguistics) society, Crafts, Table Top (board games), and Japanese societies during my MA. I only went to one or two events overall. Some societies only ever had meet-ups or events at the very last minute, so I usually had other plans or couldn't be bothered.
