Approx Jewish Students on campus - 25+

Here at Exeter we are a small, pluralist, a-political JSOC, this means we welcome all and do not take political stances as a community. This however does not mean we aren’t active and engaged on campus and with the wider world, we often have events were we invite key note speakers to engage in debate and conversation with our members. We also have weekly events which tend to alternate between a Friday night dinner and a social. Friday night dinners are generally vegetarian and are a nice place we can all spend time together at the end of the week, they also sometimes centre around a theme. The last two years we have also put on our flagship event which is the Exeter JSOC and Friends of Israel Purim Ball. This is a great way to share Purim with our friends at Exeter and we aim to keep the prices low so this ball is accessible to everyone!

What is your most memorable moment as J-Soc President?

I am just about to start my role as JSOC President but I am excited to work with my committee and invite people on campus to talk for the JSOC so we can engage in wider political issues.

Campus Notes

The uni is split into two campuses, both just minutes from the centre of town. Streatham, the main campus, is where most students are based and it’s a great place to be. The library is open 24 hours a day and there are several eateries, cafes and spaces to chill out. There is lots of green space too, as well as a number of hall bars and the campus nightclub. There are also state of the art gym facilities.

Exeter as a city is a lot smaller than most, but the nightlife is great. There’s a decent number of clubs, bars and restaurants. The theatre scene also comes highly recommended and rarely a night goes by without a few live music events.

The UJS Officer for this campus is Sam
