Everything you need to know about societies

Tuesday 25-08-2020 - 15:36

One of the best parts of the whole uni experience is making lifelong friends. By joining a club or society, you’ll meet people who share your interests in so many different things — from gaming to religion — there really is something for everybody. And if there isn’t a group for your interests, why not start your own?


What is a society

The proper (and boring) definition of a society is: “an organisation or club formed for a particular purpose or activity.” So we asked the students from Manchester Met's societies to tell us what their definition is. Here's what they said: 

“MUGSS has a bit of something for everybody.”

- Gilbert And Sullivan Society

“We welcome all abilities — it’s the best place to relax.”

- Yoga Society

“It’s a place to learn from others and express yourself.”

- Debating Society

“Its like a big family celebrating Asian culture together.”

- British Asian Society

“It makes me feel strong and empowered.”

- Pole Dancing Society

"ISOC is where I found my place of belonging.”

- ISOC Society

“It’s a home away from home.”

- Manchester Hindu Society

"An atmosphere of only good vibes.”

- Hive Radio
