    From what i've heard from friends already at uni societies are an awsome place to meet friends and get involved. Thus i've been thinking "i'll give that a try", the problem is i really have no idea which one/ones to try. I mean aren't the majority based around sport? which by the way i am great at watching/spectating but definately NOT playing. I did a lot of drama but don't want to join a dramatic societey full of drama students because to be honest i only ever used to p1ss about with drama, nothing serious. i'm going to sound really boring now but the only extra-ciricular things i did at college was read and go clubbing.
    so essentially the question i'm asking is are there any societies that are not sport based, where i can just meet people, drink and have a laugh without having to do anything "society-ish", i realise i'm probably asking a lot/being ridiculous.
    thanks

    Here's a list of the societies at Exeter. Not sure if they're all there but there's certainly a lot more than sport.

    Some of those societies look awesome

    In seriousness, The Hispanic Society, Poledancing Society, Law Society, and Philosophy Society look intriguing.

    There are many! Lots of silly societies around such as ChapSoc, ChocSoc...in fact I was a founder committee member of ChocSoc so I can confirm you're making an excellent choice there

    To be honest not seeing an Anime Society has added to the list of things that make me not want to go exeter
    Why? All you'd have to do is find some other people who are interested, and start one.

    Does anyone know if the Green Society still exists? All the info on the internet is from 2007...

    And is the ChocSoc basically what I think it is? i.e. eating chocolate? If so I am so there!

    ChocSoc = various chocolate-related events, including Malteser races, dessert-eating competitions (usually at the infamous Harry's restaurant on Longbrook Street), and pub quizzes with mahoosive chocolate bars as the first prize (by mahoosive I mean 5kg or more).

    There is a Japanese Society (started the year just passed) and speaking from experience, they talk a lot about Anime - We went to Japan over Easter, which was pretty immense!

    I believe they will be planning on going again. I'm not on the committee, but as I understand it, it is supposed to be a regular occurrence =] Works out very good value for money when I went as well - £1200, including all my spending money.

    That is AWESOME. I will definitely look in to joining that society then and that's a great price, too.

    It really is. I had £600 spending money - £200 went on the rest of the accommodation fees, for 10 days. So thats £600 for flights with Virgin - pretty good to me xD

    Whereabouts in Japan did you go? When I went we visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara, so a mixture of city and slightly more rural(ish) areas, which were lovely.
