About Us

Come to Exeter, GO to the West Country!

Wessoc is all about getting out of the ‘university bubble’ and engaging with the life, culture and scenery of the West Country. We’ll take you out of the campus to places of outstanding natural beauty, offer unique local experiences, and introduce you to the cultural and culinary delights of this slice of Britain.

Aims and Objectives:

  1. Encourage students from all over the UK and ACROSS THE WORLD to get out and enjoy all that this beautiful part of the country has to offer, by organizing trips to areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Dartmoor, the Quantocks, Cornish beaches, and Land’s End. As well as places of exception, such as the Eden Project, Cheddar Gorge and Stonehenge. Making these places accessible by offering subsidised group transport.
  2. To celebrate West Country life, culture, and scenery.
  3. Provide fun, unique and high-quality events, ranging from socials at local venues in Exeter to weekend trips to Cornwall.
  4. We will prove our ability to run affordable events and trips that attract people beyond our society and develop our reach across campus and the city.

If you love beautiful sandy beaches, pasties, cider, moor-top walks, cozy pubs, and trying new activities then this is the society for YOU. Be part of it, sign up today here!
