Why should I join a Society?

Societies Awards Winners

Some of the greatest memories students have of their time in College are from getting involved in Societies and attending Society events. The diversity of CIT Societies means that practically every taste is catered for. College is a time of learning so you shouldn't confine yourself to activities you are already familiar with.

By signing up to a society you become an official society member.  You will receive information directly on upcoming events for that particular society so you are the first to hear about upcoming events and outings.

Education is more than academic studies. A Society is all about interacting and socialising with other students with similar interests, which in turn relieves the pressures of being buried beneath a pile of economics, chemistry or mechanics books!
