"The societies board played a key role in my involvement with societies, the union and the wider university environment. I had an insight into the different types of societies, why they exist, and what they like to apply for funding for. All requests made by societies were given equal attention by the board and we made mutual decisions in approving funds, new societies etc. It was one the most interesting roles I had for the year and I would urge anyone reading this to get involved!"
