Societies will be moving online when we return in September. However, the wonderful activities team are working very hard behind the scenes to make sure that the societies are still able to have a valuable and enjoyable experience. They are coming up with creative new ways to get the societies excited about the year ahead, as well as providing plenty of support and guidance. There are plans about possibly allowing the societies to meet up in person, yet this is not set in stone, because as we all know, things are forever changing in this current climate.
It is a known fact that societies are a place for students to meet like-minded people and a chance to completely be themselves. It has so many other benefits, such as building confidence, learning new skills, improving academic performance, etc. Therefore, one of my main priorities this year is to make sure that the members from these societies still feel like they have a place to belong, and a place to call their community, despite the circumstances.
