Hear from some first-hand clubbers

How can we explain what being in a club or society is really like? Put our current students centre stage to give you the run-down!

Minna Annand, Mitchell Rugby Club

“In my experience, the best aspect of being part of a club is the friendships you gain. The girls in my team have been there for one another throughout every season I’ve played, as well as the club. You know that with every try scored or game lost, every single player and coach from every grade, every social member, old boys and girls, family and friends are all there week in and week out, creating memories with you.

Paige Peterson, Residence Association

“I became involved in the Residence Association because I’m passionate about making the residence as homely as possible and love organising events. Ultimately, I was lucky enough to be nominated as president. This provides me with the opportunity to give a voice to all of the residents.

“The best part about being involved in a club is the opportunity to become more involved in university life. It’s a great way to build a connection with others while also being able to create change within the uni. Joining a club is a great way to meet new people outside of your degree and to become involved in something that you’re really passionate about.”

Laura Van Keulen, Wilderness Club

“I became a member of Wilderness Club as a first-year student. A friend of mine was elected president and asked me if I would be interested in the treasurer position. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but he convinced me to take the leap – and I’m very glad he did!

“By joining a club or society, you’re making your university experience so much more than just study. You really get to experience what it’s like to be part of a new community and also have a say in how you want to spend your free time. That’s definitely the best part for me.

“To anyone thinking of joining a club or society, I would say go for it! You have nothing to lose by joining and you’ll really enrich your experience at uni. If there isn’t a club that you’re interested in joining, why not start one of your own?”
