Q. Do most social events at university involve alcohol?
A. No. At the University of Exeter for example there are over 140 societies and 50 sports clubs that you can join at the Exeter campuses and around 80 societies and sports clubs at the Cornwall Campus. Each year over 9,000 of our students join at least one society or club making it one of the best ways to meet people and make friends on campus. Each society is run solely for the benefit of its members, by the students themselves. And if you have a particular interest you can set up your own society! You will also have the support of your students’ union to help you find out about these opportunities and here at Exeter we are proud to have an award-winning Students' Guild who in 2010 won the National Union of Students (NUS) Student Union of the Year Award.

Services such as the Health Centre, Accessability and Wellbeing will be able to talk through a number of options available to you, you will never need to deal with anything alone.
