    Why should I join?

    Jari Morganti, a second year Experimental Psychology student at Corpus Christi College, says: "OUAS is the perfect society for anyone interested in flying, adventure or leadership. We offer a range of activities that will suit anyone. In recent years we have organised scuba diving, climbing, canoeing, gliding, and we teach members to fly year-round. Although I do want to join the RAF, there is absolutely no commitment to do so, and the majority of students don’t. My highlight has to be flying.
