As a USAC student, you can join the host university's Student Union, which provides a comprehensive range of services, events, and student activities. For example, the International Student Society organizes a number of social events, cultural activities, and tours throughout the academic year. Over 100 clubs and societies are also available, focusing on interests that vary from canoeing to mountaineering, horse racing to motorcycling, dramatic pursuits to Earthwatch. There is also a Chaplaincy on campus, which offers support within the university community and serves as a place of welcome for all. Many students visit its Tea Room/Lounge as a drop-in center for coffee and to attend campus events and informal get-togethers. A wide range of sporting activities are also available to students, such as hockey, rugby, softball, squash, rowing, swimming, and volleyball.
Although most degree-seeking students will be away from campus during the summer term, there are plenty of ways for you to immerse yourself in the local campus, community, and culture. See ideas below.
