‘This prosperous city is home to some of the best galleries, museums and quirky cinemas’

a Monday afternoon to showcase a film that all students are welcome to go along and watch, with the chance to meet new people and discuss films, all whilst munching on some free popcorn! The Photographic Society is for all students wanting to enhance their photography skills or just develop a new skill altogether! The society has various excursions and assignments that are set each week, for example, last year the budding photographers went to Loch Lomond and did a photo-shoot in a studio with real models! The society also provides all equipment needed, including cameras so there is no excuse not to join! However if that is not enough to convince you, I asked each of the societies wise members to describe it in three words and the responses were quite different… ‘Diverse, Creative and Confidence Boosting’ Danielle Garrets, Drama Society. ‘Fun, Free and Fantastic’ – Francis Polding, Film Society. ‘Flashy, Challenging and Rewarding’ – Kim Curry, Photographic Society. Although each response was quite varied, all members had the same trail of thought when

it came to how their club would benefit new students and this was that it would help student’s meet new people, learn new skills and grow in confidence. These are all vital elements of being at university and for me I know I never would have realised my love for fine art, if it had not been for taking up this position as Arts and Culture Editor! So when I said earlier make a change and explore this year that does not just count for Glasgow or even the University but learn and discover new things about yourself by getting out there and becoming involved. And with such excellent opportunities at your fingertips, no student has an excuse!
