(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There is a huge range of societies at Lancaster University. You can find them on the Lancaster University student union page, or talk to them in person at the freshers fair (there is also re-freshers after Christmas for anyone who missed out on the first one). I've tried many different clubs so far, such as Harry Potter society, assassins' guild, belly dance, climbing, running, and I'm looking forward to trying another new one next term – archery. There are also a lot of charity organisations, such as Water Aid, Bernardo's, Nightline and more."
