African Caribbean society is orientated around unity, entertainment and empowerment. The society focuses on giving students the opportunity to experience the warm and vibrant culture through different medias. This is accomplished through music, drama, food, poetry and dances etc. We exist to complement the academic diversity of the university. We make our members aware of the career opportunities available, as well as help members develop skills required to excel in their career paths.
