2016

"It's a small place so you're bound to bump into someone you know wherever you go in Aber, you'll always have mutual friends too. This means there are great ties (and also rivalries) between lots of the sports clubs, which makes events like Superteams really fun. Sports and societies make up a huge part of most people's lives. For such a small place, there are hundreds of things to do: from fencing to football, to wildlife conservation and mental health awareness, there's always something going on. The arts centre on campus is nationally regarded as a major arts and culture provider and regularly hosts concerts, plays, comedy and exhibitions by international artists and performers. There's no better place to be if you love getting involved." Aberystwyth University
