Title: clubs/societies
Post by: *ryan777* on January 12, 2010, 12:42:03 am
ive started this thread to ask current/future uom students what clubs or societies they belong to or plan to join

while i definatly want to join a club or something at uni but im still very much undecided on which one is for me

id love to hear real experiences of current students and their club activites as im kinda scared of joining, commiting myself socially/financially for a semester and then finding out i dont particulary like it a week later

There actually is no maths society as yet, but there's one being created as we speak, should be up and running by O-week (see the link below). Hopefully I should be a part of it when I get back to Canbore.

I don't know how active the physics society is, but they do issue some pretty sweet tshirts that you'll see around campus, my favourite being:

God said

and there was light.

Oddly enough, there is a very popular astrophysics society (aptly named the Black Hole Society) that runs some interesting seminars and pizza/movie nights every now and then - I highly recommend you join it (it's strange though because there are a lot more BHS members than students actually studying astrophysics!).

@ Monash, I'm a member of the anime, Japanese, STEW and ECSS clubs.

Not overly active in any of them... I plan to be more-so for Jap and STEW this year, since I don't have the Jap conversation group anymore (the senpai who organised it graduated).

They're a really friendly mob, and they usually dress in cosplay during the clubs and societies carnival (o-week and first week of uni).
They have an anime night once a week where everyone's welcome to come and watch whatever episodes they're playing.
It was on a Wednesday night last semester though, and I didn't have class on Wednesdays.

Yeah, they do heaps of stuff... quite an active club.

I joined a few clubs/societies last year, some of which were good but others not so. It depends on what you're into.

I highly recommend joining MASS (Melbourne Arts Students Society), SSS (Science Students Society) and CSS (Commerce Students Society), which hold regular BBQ's with free beer and sausages. These BBQ's are definately good places to chill with friends in your spare time. By memory, I think they cost like $2 per society (I think the CSS is abit more expensive) or something so it's definately worth it and you usually get other discounts for pubs around uni too. Also they e-mail/txt you upcomming parties that are being organised which is handy if you want to go to them, because they generally sell out very quickly and knowing when/where tickets are being sold is good.
