Hi everyone, I’m Milly, your Vice President Societies at the Students’ Union. My job is to support you as students to join and run Societies and Student-Led Services.
There are 200 Societies affiliated to the Guild of Societies. Your first chance to meet all of these Societies is on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd September between 10am – 5pm in the Great Hall & Y Stwidio. There will be a different selection of Societies represented on each day so don’t only turn up to one day or you’ll miss out!
Joining a Society in my first year was one of the best decisions I made and I would highly recommend that you get involved as soon as you can. With so many groups for you to join there is bound to be something here for you – and if there isn’t we can support you in starting a brand new Society. There is no limit to how much you can get involved with either!
Big events to look forward to throughout the year include the Winter Showcase, Cardiff Fringe Festival and Go Global. These events are all there to display the amazing achievements of our many Societies, especially those that are performances, artistic, activity and international based. Another highlight of the year is the Societies Ball which celebrates and awards the amazing things that have happened throughout the year thanks to the hard work of our Societies.
If you want any more information about Societies then the Activities Department in the Students’ Union can be found on the 3rd floor. Otherwise you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
