P.A2.S.S. is an important resource for students to help them truly thrive on campus, with support not only from classmates but also the resources provided from guest speakers, who are key members of UConn administration.  We will also have information on upcoming AACC events and ways to get involved in the center. This gathering is a great way for all students to get to know each other and find out more about the AACC.
