Bridging our past with our present, the African American Cultural Celebration (AACC) serves as a traditional rite of passage that recognizes and affirms students of African descent who have completed a rigorous journey through academia at the University of Southern California. This largely attended celebration consists of 2 events, the AACC Recognition Dinner and the AACC Ceremony. This highly anticipated celebration unites students, families, and friends through culture and achievement.
