The Society App returns to take over Birmingham with the African Caribbean Society
Updated: May 16
In October, Birmingham ACS' joined forces with the free Society app to create the ultimate party experience celebrating African and Caribbean culture. The Society collaborative event 'Litty Committee' caused waves throughout Birmingham, checking in over 700 students inside an unforgettable night. The dream team consisted of Aston ACS, Birmingham City ACS, and University of Birmingham ACS, who have all created their own branded community apps on Society and grown a huge presence gaining over 300 student members in each app.
“Litty Committee” captured the vitality of ACS’ in Birmingham and provided students with an affordable night out without any compromise in experience. Society awarded students with hundreds of discounted student tickets via the Society app, which sold out in a matter of days - earning a record-breaking sales campaign on the app.
Society app has connected over 3,000 ACS students from across the country
The event provided a stepping stone for Birmingham ACS' and created early connections between student members and committees, all of which we hope will form into long-lasting relationships.
To date, the Society app has connected over 3,000 ACS students from across the country. Society is now on pace to make exponential growth with the ACS network and beyond.
Joshua Olagunju, Strategy Executive at Society and former Aston ACS President, expressed his dedication, “I vow to continue supporting ACS with the aim of creating a model that can benefit ACS and other student networks on the Society app.”
