ACS: African-Caribbean Society

The African & Caribbean society aims to enrich awareness of the different cultures of African and Caribbean nations. We provide a wide range of opportunities for our members to take part in engaging and enjoyable activities. We want to educate and empower our members through our various cultural and social events.

The ACS is known for having the BEST Student’s Union takeovers. With DJs bringing you the top Bashment, Hip Hop Afro-Beats and live acts, everyone is guaranteed to have a great night. For those who prefer a more chilled-out social, ACS will hold movie nights and regular meet-ups for members to enjoy themselves over good food, music and relaxed vibes.

ACS aims to help shape students into global citizens and prepare them for life after university.  In addition to all our socials, we will give members the chance to network and volunteer alongside other societies on campus.

We take responsibility in making sure that are members are represented on campus, therefore we will be encouraging conversations about social and political issues affecting the African and Caribbean communities. Our talks and debates will ensure that members of the society have the opportunity to freely voice their opinions on the recent issues that have been taking place around the world.

University is like a rollercoaster, and we will be by your side through the ups and the downs. With a family-like atmosphere, you will feel comfortable and at ease throughout the year. Make sure to join the 2016/17 fam!
