Clubs & resources
African Caribbean Student Club (ACSC)
The ACSC creates a space for members of the African and Caribbean cultures to build a home together and create community. It is also a space where individuals who are not part of this community can come and learn more about it. We work to create a space where everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity or background can come together and celebrate our African and Caribbean cultures.
The ACSC hosts regular events throughout the year. Follow them on Instagram to stay tuned with how you can get involved!
