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 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!
The diversity of CIT Societies means that practically every taste is catered for. During the academic year 2018/2019 there were 44 Societies in operation in CIT. Grab the opportunity to experience something new or pursue an interest you have always wanted to explore. Why not get involved in the Anime & Manga Society, Music Society or Yoga Society or get to know more people by getting involved in your academic-related Society.
CIT Societies are some of the best Societies in Ireland frequently winning at the BICS (Board of Irish College Societies) National Awards. Students who are at the heart of running CIT Societies have achieved the honour of winning National ‘Society of the Year’, ‘Most Improved Society’, ‘Best Event’ as well as ‘Individual Awards’.
To be elected as a Society committee officer is a huge bonus for your CV by providing an opportunity to develop your communication and teamwork skills.
