Utilising social groups or setting up your own

"The most prominent social group, in terms of support, is ACS. It’s great for meeting people you can relate to, making friends and having fun. My College community is close-knit so they’ve also been so helpful. There are many ways to get involved. I prefer to get involved in stuff behind the scenes such as the Black Advisory Hub."
