(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There are over 200 societies, ranging from sports to Harry Potter – something for everyone. I am part of the Photosoc, one of the media societies, and enjoy the weekly workshops/meetings/trips. I have met some great people and am able to earn money on the side as part of their freelance photography network. Also, I am on the committee next year (I am only a first year), something I am very excited about."
