Why be involved in societies?
One of the greatest things about being in a society is the social life that it offers, sometimes getting to know people at University can be difficult in the first few weeks. Getting involved in a society gives you the opportunity to meet people with similar interests to you outside your course or halls.
Another benefit is the huge range of possibilities that are open at Exeter, there are over 200 different society groups who can help you to make the most of your stay in Exeter.
From getting the most out of your degree with academic focussed societies, such as the Bracton Law Society, to trying a new and interesting hobby that you maybe wouldn’t get the chance to try anywhere else, like Slacklining!
Above all being part of a society gives you something to do each week and it looks great on your CV, whether you just attend the events or become the President!
Societies can be a key part of your student experience whilst you are at Exeter!
They provide you with the opportunity to learn something new, develop more knowledge in something you already love, meet new people and boost your CV and experiences with the chance to lead, event manage, budget and project plan!
With more than 10,000 students involved in societies, they are also an amazing way to boost you social circle! With over 200 societies on offer, there really is something for everyone and if there isn’t something you like the look of, you can start your own!
