(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"The sports societies are really good – there's something for everyone. Every year we have the Granite City challenge, which is the biggest varsity event in Scotland. Aberdeen goes against RGU for every sport (all in one day usually) and each year there is a champion. It's big and is taken seriously!"
