East African Society

East African Society is a space where we promote and share the rich culture of East Africa. Expect to meet new friendly people, explore different cultural cuisines, and celebrate the diversity of cultures through our exciting events!

We aim to UNITE you in East African culture, to INSPIRE you to connect with your natal roots (or interest), and to NETWORK with other like-minded people to help you settle into uni-life in Southampton!

Our motto is to UNITE, INSPIRE, NETWORK.
