What we’re all about
MathSoc brings together students with an interest in maths, either for their degree or a general love. The main function of the society is to allow like-minded mathematicians to meet up, have fun, and let off steam; giving them the support to work hard, and the socials to play harder.
The MathSoc calendar is jam-packed with exciting socials, starting with a short icebreaker on Thursday 27th September and followed by our first night out at Bobby's Disco on Monday 7th October. We will also be hosting Otley runs, pub quizzes, and an infamous weekend trip abroad, but if this isn't enough, we also drop massive bar tabs on our nights out! Don't worry if you're not a big drinker as we will still have plenty of socials this year to cater for you!
Our biggest event of the year is always the MathSoc Winter Wonderland Ball, which will again be hosted at The Queens, giving you all a great opportunity to dress up and act like royalty!
We have career related and networking events across the year too, such as talks from external speakers and immersive office days. We recommend these as a way to create contacts and build relationships with possible employers.
Another way to get involved is by joining either our football or netball teams. After the success of winning the league last year, our football team have now added an extra squad so there's an opportunity for all players to get involved, no matter their skill level. All our sports teams have one training and one match every week: a great way to have fun and relax during your studies.
Membership is £12 per year, but you can secure your membership for your whole degree for only £25! If you want to join one of our sports teams then this will only cost you an extra £8, and so is one of the cheapest ways to play sport at University.
