With over 300 societies and committees to choose from – every taste and pursuit you can think of is catered for at the SU.

Your social life is about to get a lot more interesting!

Having tried it out myself and knowing a number of others who have, I can definitely vouch for the incredible feeling of gratification that comes with helping another person, meeting someone new or even exchanging about common interests.

It’s an *excellent* ice-breaker and a great way to feel confident and comfortable meeting new, amazingly interesting people from your very union.

So, the plans for the near future: with the help of my wonderful team, I’ll be organising events anyone can join and to which you’re all warmly invited. In the mean time, check out the the Societies Festival taking place 18 February 2015 (Wednesday) from 11am to 5pm in the Sheffield Students’ Union.

We’ll likely be there to meet you and answer any questions, comments, ideas or enthusiasm you may have.

The charity love-fest will take place at Mook at 7pm, followed by Hifi in order to raise money for Leeds Deaf Children’s Society.

Events Manager Fiona Metcalfe said: “We are introducing a live twitter feed, live music in the interval, truth & dare rounds, conversation starters/question cards and 2-1 cocktail drinks deals and sweets!

You, on the other hand, might be an amazing cook and could teach me how to turn egg whites into snow.
