Connect

Connect is a chance for students to ‘link up’ with Student Life. Student Life aims to connect students with Student Life resources through interactive components fostering natural conversations and connections. It also serves to  anchor students to the ACC resources that are available to help them succeed.

Nite In The Life

Each spring Student Life hosts Nite in the Life to recognize the excellent work of student leaders across ACC. Students, staff and faculty are able to nominate Riverbat Ambassadors, Student Organizations and Events for recognition.
