New South Wales Theatrical Society

If your whole world’s a stage, then you had better join the UNSW Theatre Society!

They put on several week long productions over the semester from Shakespeare to modern dramas, and there are so many ways to get involved! Learn hands on skills like lighting, sound design, set design, publicity, and acting. If you're more of a behind the scenes person there are also writing workshops held weekly, allowing you to get your creative juices flowing. Plus every Thursday they get together for “Trashi-oke” at the Regent Hotel to belt out some 80’s ballards.

Dance DJ MC Graffiti Society

D2MG (dance, DJ, MC, graffiti) is your friendly local campus Hip Hop Society that aims to spread the love for Hip Hop and its culture! Although we focus more on our street dancing aspects (breaking, hip hop, popping, locking, waacking and house), it doesn't mean that we're forgetting about the other elements that make the culture. Established in 2002, we're keeping it real and are constantly aiming higher!

What we do?

- D2Classes: Taught by mentors and fellow students. Don't be scared - they're casual and not as formal as studio classes, and cost much much less too!

- Workshops: Much more formal and taught by real instructors from the Sydney dance scene!

- Crews: We got the performance crew and freestyle crew that's formed through auditions.

- Dance events: From dance battles to casual jam session.

- Social events: Music, food.. and maybe some drinks!

Debating Society

If debating already wasn’t cool enough, the coolest thing about the club is the ability to meet some of UNSW’s brightest (and funniest) students. Holding weekly internals debating sessions on campus, which often include a seminar on debating skills starting at 5.30; internals begins at 6pm, plus free dinner and drinks after every debate at Coco Cubano. 

The biggest event of the year is the Launch Debates on the first Monday of Semester 2, held in the UNSW Business School Lounge.

They also hold regular tournaments before the major intervarsity tournaments on weekends throughout the year, and socials for the first year cohort in our society and our Womens’ group. With a super strong focus on diversity, affirmative action quotas for female identifying and non binary students for all of our competition contingents to ensure our debaters reflect what our university looks like, but tbh, the best thing might truly be the free aioli + sweet potato fries as Coco Cubano every week.

Open to all ages, degrees and experience levels, Law Revue prides itself in the diversity and growth of its members.

Society of Orchestra & Pipers

SOAP provides an opportunity for members of the UNSW community to interact with like-minded musicians and develop their ensemble playing through our two groups, the orchestra and wind symphony.  

We have weekly rehearsals and each ensemble puts on three concerts during the year. This allows the wider community to engage with what we do, along with providing a chance for our members to perform on a scale that would not be possible elsewhere. 

We also run a camp, cruise, ball and various social outings throughout the year.
