What is a Society?
A society is a group of people who have common interests which they wish to explore at University. These tend to fit into several broad categories; Religious & Lifestyle, Special interest, Performing Arts, Campaigns and Political, Cultural and Academic. Each society outlines its aims and objectives in a document known as its 'Constitution' which is approved by its members.
