Africa is a continent made up of 54 incredibly intricate, vibrant and diverse nations with rich and interconnected histories. At the University of Auckland, this African Society is an environment where African students can build a network and create a sense of community and belonging with other African students. In doing so we want facilitate a sense of pride and empowerment among students.
With this society we aim to celebrate and promote awareness of the unique nations and histories that make up the Motherland. We also wish to welcome and enlighten all students that are interested about the unique African cultures and traditions, which includes food, clothing, languages and music.
The African Society is a platform for African students to talk about issues that they face while adapting to New Zealand culture and society. This also allows non-African members to offer assistance in how to adjust and make the most of their surroundings.
