Afrocentric Student Club

afro-centic club logo

A space for students of color and allies to come together to share in community. A space for students to laugh, to cry, to study and discuss, to be, and to grow together. All are welcome in this club. We exist to elevate Black and Brown voices, to increase Black and Brown representation, and to grow together in our understanding and celebration of Black and Afrocentric history, heritage, culture and traditions. 

Meetings are held on Friday's at 11:30 AM in the Multicultural Center in Coats Campus Center (CCC) 217.
