Thousands of Students with Free Branded App

More than two hundred Society Ambassadors attended Freshers Fairs at Universities across the UK to promote the Society app to clubs, societies and students. All ambassadors wore the Society hoodie while spreading the word about the features and benefits of the app. The awareness campaign was a huge success with over 1,200 clubs now on the Society app.

“Your own free branded app in an instant”

Society is now the fastest growing app at University for clubs and societies. And, it’s completely free for students. The Society app made its debut at King’s College London when Matthew Billington who was the President of King’s College London Dental Society decided to revolutionize the way his club was run by developing the app to solve engagement problems.

Society app Co-Founder Matthew said, “What an honour, providing thousands of students with their own branded app. Society and the team have performed incredibly showing huge growth every day. Let’s continue until every society in the UK gets their own branded app.”

“Societies were very eager to get on the app”

Society is your own branded app in an instant. App features include push notifications direct to all your members for instant alerts and updates for events and announcements. It has your club’s calendar of events, an instant searchable network, personal profiles, direct messaging, group chats, free e-tickets and much, much more. With over 1,200 clubs with group chats in over 130 Universities, Society is growing extremely fast.

Student Hannah who attended the Freshers Fair at the University of Surrey said, “Societies were very eager to get on the app. They loved the functionality of it and how easy it would be for students to find them and see what the society is about.”

Student Polina from Manchester Metropolitan University added, “Everyone was very curious to know about the Society app and the great majority found it very convenient having all of their information about the society in one place. Overall, everyone had a very positive attitude towards the idea!”

The Society Ambassadors spoke to hundreds of students and committee members. They even managed to capture some of the moments. Social media was filled with photos and videos from the Freshers Fairs they attended. The ambassadors shared it was a great experience to promote the Society app.

Student Jade, from University of Surrey said, “Incredible! It was so fun and refreshing to get very hands-on experience interacting with so many people within my University. It was really lovely to be able to talk to so many people I otherwise may not have had the chance to and tell them about a platform that can really help out their society or club!”

Student Mithara, who attended the fair at Durham University, also added, “It was fun working at the Freshers Fair and promoting the Society app.”

On another celebratory note, a fresher from the University of Bristol, is the winner of Society’s Freshers MacBook Air giveaway. Thousands of students from Universities across the country entered the prize draw. The winner was chosen at the beginning of the academic year.

Sujal, who is from India and currently studying Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol said, “When I signed up for it, I did not expect that I would be the winner. I’m very thankful to the Society team!”

Sujal has already received his brand-new MacBook Air and shared a video with all Society App’s followers showing his excitement. Matthew also wished Sujal to have a very successful first year at University.
