The best time to join is at the societies’ fair at the beginning of the academic year, in Freshers’ Week.
Most clubs and societies are administered by the Junior Members Association and run by undergraduates, but open to graduates. Music is a senior society. The list of societies is long and includes the Debating Society, History Society, RAG etc. If you can’t find what you are interested in you can always found your own! Societies usually keep the whole college up to date on what they are doing, so it is easy to contact them. Otherwise contact a member of the JCR for more details (see Links page).
