Akwaaba (Black Student Welcome)

Akwaaba 2016: Say It Loud!


Each year, the African American Cultural & Resource Center formally welcomes students back to the University of Cincinnati, specifically seeking and catering to incoming Black students who are new to the university.

Akwaaba, which is the Akan (Ghana) word for “welcome,” is a celebratory and informative time to introduce campus services, student organizations, and community resources to students, while providing a formal space for our "Center Kids" to reunite after their summer break! We kick off every school year by filling the TUC Great Hall with over 50 campus and community organizations that are unique to the needs of Black college students. Whether you’re looking to get involved on campus, finding a new place to worship, or finding a local barber or beautician...you will not want to miss Akwaaba on August 28th!
