      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Whatever you're interested in, or whatever you want to go into when you leave uni, there's so much to choose to do at Leeds which could help fill up your otherwise hangover-and-Richard-and-Judy-infested mornings (okay, perhaps 'mornings' is a little optimistic!). From the vast array of sports clubs and the performing arts societies, to the more obscure (and often infamous!) groups which are joined stereotypically by greasy-haired, Red Dwarf t-shirt-wearing science students. The best place to find out more about these is at the Freshers' Fayre at the beginning of term (which, incidently is open to non-Freshers who suddenly realise it's time to have something to put down on their CVs) and the societies' introductory meetings around the same time. As far as student media goes, there are the excellent, multi-award-winning, Leeds Student (the newspaper which is published every Friday during term-time) and LSRfm (Leeds Student Radio which broadcasts on FM for 2 months a year and on the internet all year round). Being a somewhat senior member of the latter this year, I have to declare a personal interest and take the opportunity to unshameably plug it (especially its fabulous Spoken Word department!) - so have a quick peek at http://www.lsrfm.com! Anyway, if you're going to be a newbie to the university this autumn, or if you're already there and want to get involved in something, I strongly advise that you keep your eyes and ears peeled. Everyone I know involved in the societies is friendly and approachable (except for in a few sports clubs, in my experience, where I left feeling rather scared!), so they'll only be more than happy to help out with anything. (And remember a certain Head of Spoken Word who is always incredibly grateful to have new people on board!)

        I've been a student at the University of Leeds for the last three years and am going back to do a PhD soon. I've had a really good time, one of the reasons for this is the great selection of sports clubs and societies. I've been an active member of leeds university union ten pin bowling club for ages and am now the president of this society. And I can tell you being a member of a soiceity such as this is a great way to make new friends and to get yourself out of the house. The social scene is fantastic and most people are really easy to get on with. When you join a university such as this I would reccomend that you look around the fresers fair and see what clubs ans societies you can join. But dont part with your hard earned cash straight away, only join one or two because u wont have enough time to do them all Cheers Alex
