When it comes to joining a society the only real question is ‘why not’? Whether you’ve never been part of a society before or just feeling a bit nervous about signing up, here are the reasons why you should take the plunge and join in.

 

Have a new experience

Joining a society provides you with the opportunity to get involved in activities you might have never considered before. Even if you don’t fancy getting out of your comfort zone there are plenty of closer to home experiences to be had, sign up to the Tea and Hot Chocolate Society or try out a spot of Yoga.
