(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"Definitely! There are loads of societies for students from many different backgrounds. A friend of mine has recently started up a society for international students at Lancaster, which has become very popular. She is currently trying to get some ethnically diverse food to be offered in the Spar, having already asked everyone on the society's facebook page what they would like. During freshers, the university also makes sure to offer alternative social events for students who don't want to drink or go out. Such as movie nights, treasure hunts, or Ceilidh dances (Cartmel hosted one in my freshers), which have been very successful!"
