Walking through uni the other day I saw people setting up a multitude of stalls along Eastern Avenue. A giddy sense of excitement welled up inside of me as I braced myself for the fun ball of happiness that’s about to explode on campus: O-Week!

Speed dating in Manning Bar isn't the only way to meet new people during O-Week; you can also get an Access card and join a million clubs and societies. But what exactly are clubs and societies?

I was a little weirded out by the whole concept of 'clubsocs' when I first came to uni. But basically, they're groups of like-minded people that hold events, have parties, make friends and distract themselves from class.

It’s pretty hard to strike up conversation in lectures and tutorials, as everyone seems to be constantly rushing to the next thing. I'm in a couple societies at uni for things I’m interested in, including PhotoSoc, JazzSoc, VegeSoc and the Arts Revue Society. For me, they’re all fun ways to meet people and hang out together.

The society I’m most involved with at the moment is the Sydney University Dramatic Society (SUDS). I love SUDS because you get a chance to perform in plays and make super-awesome theatre friends who might be famous one day. Check out this video for more info.

There are hundreds of other societies (political, religious, humanitarian, environmental, cultural, sports and more) – so get an Access card at O-Week and join as many as your heart desires!

Check out the O-Week website for more details.
