It was really fun! There were lots of societies to choose from, so I joined the Drama Soc. My Halls JCR (2nd Year Reps) were also super helpful and friendly. My Halls experience wouldn't have been the same without our second year reps. They were super helpful, from organising socials to helping us find our way around campus and signposting to welfare systems The SU is great, the nightclub and outlets are brilliant and societies are friendly and welcoming. The library was unfortunately under construction for ages but it's great now, even with COVID. I loved the balance of practice and theory that the Film course provides. Also even with COVID we have been able to do practicals which is great, especially when we can use the university equipment and facilities Reading is such a vibrant town, it's a great place to discover new things and meet people to suit every type of person. It's super close to London but still doesn't feel overwhelming, like a big city might.
