Meet our international and cultural societies: African cultures

Student life is about much more than just studying, and joining student societies is an excellent way to enhance your student experience. The University of Nottingham’s Students’ Union offers over 200 societies and over 70 sports clubs, with opportunities to start your own society or sports club too. You can meet members of of the full range of societies at the Welcome Fair (22 to 24 September) during the Students’ Union’s Week One activities.

Among the many societies available, there are over 50 that represent countries and cultures of the world or faiths, thought and beliefs, and we are presenting a selection of welcome messages from these societies over the next two weeks. Today’s messages come from some of the societies related to African countries and cultures, but check our blog soon for Asian, European and Latin American cultural societies, plus religious societies and other international networks. If you want to find out more about a society, please use the links below, contact the society directly, or look for them at the Welcome Fair.
