    Societies wont and shouldnt intefer with work anyway because their events and so on are held outside of lecture hours (generally, there are occassionally exceptions for trips and things)

    Having said that, most societies tend to hold things at the same time (ie wednesday afternoons/evenings) so your society meetings or social events may clash and you may have to choose between them.

    timetokill is totally right. I wouldn't join more than two societies. Most societies hold their meetings or whatever in the afternoons, although some are in the evenings, so the only way you could work it is if you did football for e.g. in the afternoon then went to the rock society wednesday night. It's best you don't put too much on your plate in the long run. Most societies you can join at any time too. Plus youhave to pay for them all.
