19 Things You’ll Know To Be True If You’ve Ever Joined a Society at University

If you’re a student, joining a society while you’re at university can be quite daunting but it’s certainly worth it.

1. It’s highly likely you initially only joined because you were enticed with baked goods.

OH, go on then.

2. And goody bags, obviously.

If you join enough societies you’ll never need to buy pens again.

8. And the socials. Let’s not forget those.

We all need some down time from our courses.

9. Inadvertently ending up part of even more societies if you join one through sister societies or collaborations.

Which becomes a problem when it comes to events that are held on the same night.

10. And your friendships will be tested if you join rival societies.

Game on.

11. You always have a valid excuse to leave your room or the library for society night.

12. And better yet, your confidence will be boosted as you mingle with society regulars.

Classy, yet sassy.

13. Hating that one person who always “forgets” to pay their membership.

EVERY TIME.

14. Gaining your own society squad and finding that you have more in common than you first thought you did.

15. Being opened up to different cultures and traditions.

Making your parents proud that you actually are mingling with people from different backgrounds.

16. And looking forward to each society social as if you haven’t had one in ages (you have).

CANNOT. CONTAIN. EXCITEMENT.

17. Sometimes your society becomes a bit like therapy.

Especially around exam season.

18. So when you miss a society event, you almost feel empty inside.

“So there definitely isn’t a session this week?”

19. Because joining was one of the best decisions you ever made.

EVER.
