University is all about finding friends, community, and yourself. One thing that can help you with this? Student Societies and Clubs!
What are they?
Societies and clubs are student led groups that provide an opportunity to socialise, learn and get involved with the student community outside of class. There’s around 200 societies and clubs at Strath Union and all of them will be actively recruiting new members this freshers!
We’ve got almost anything you can think of societies for your course, hobby, and identity and if you can’t find what you’re looking for – The union is there to support you in creating a new one!
You can find information on all societies currently at Strath Union on our Find A Society page and from there you’ll be able to identify a society you’re interested in, find out meeting and event details and find contact information – meaning you can reach out to societies to find out more about what’s on offer.
Some societies will charge a small fee to ‘become a member’. This helps to fund activities throughout the year and get equipment for the club, If you want to join a society but are unable to pay the membership fee don’t worry and don’t let it out you off! The unions Participation Fund is there to make sure no one misses out.
