64 new Students' Union societies have started since September!

The Society Reps have had their final meeting of term and have approved 24 more new society applications, bringing the total number of new Students' Union societies up to 64 this year.

Societies are run by students, for students, and you need only three current students to start a new society. Anyone can apply, and your application will be reviewed by the Society Reps. Find out more about starting a new group.

The Society Reps, an elected group of students who are experienced society committee members, meet every week to make decisions about societies at Sussex. Read more about the Societies Committee.

The Reps review applications to start and re-new societies that did not hand over to a new committee by the end of spring term 2018, as well as allocate funding from the Societies Fund. They also shortlist the nominations for the societies category of the annual Student Awards, and report any issues that come up throughout the year to the Students' Union Activities Officer. The Activities Officer chairs the Societies Committee, and also votes on the applications for new societies and funding bids to the Societies Fund.

The newly approved societies are currently being processed by the Societies and Student Media team, and will be online in the next couple of weeks. Meet the new groups at the Refreshers Fair in February!
