What is this insignia?

Asked by peedub (8682points) May 16th, 2008

The story: I found this very old, wool college sweater at an estate sale earlier today. The first thing that came to mind was Skull and Crossbones, as in the secret society. ‘PRE MED’ is pretty straightforward, but I can’t figure out what ACC stands for, though I’ve attempted some research.

edit: “Skull and Bones”

when googling “Pre Med ACC” i got ACC as Atlantic Coast Conference, a sporting conference.

EDIT: for players selected for All-ACC Teams. May well be a pre med student selected for an ACC team

my pediatrician went to the medical college of Georgia and has a really cool skull class ring. Could be related. You might try an alumni group from there?

While Atlantic Coast Conference was the first thing that jumped into my mind too, I am not sure it is correct here. Another more likely possibility might be American College of Cardiology?

The secret Yale society known as Skull and Bones seems unlikely, since as a secret society I doubt that they would be making sweaters for people announcing their membership.
I also doubt highly that it is the American College of Cardiology since that isn’t a college per se, but rather a professional society of practicing cardiologists. It would be unlikely that a member of that professional society would be premed at the same time.
The skull and bones is often used in medical societies, so it could be related to that, or an obscure college with the same acronym.
Another real possibility is that ACC is someone’s initials, which I think is the likeliest explanation.

I don’t know what kind of insignia it is, but it’s a darned good argument for using moth balls.

Ok dig this I live in Georgia and I have seen that ring on many doctors. When asked they won’t speak on the subject. But many people died over that ring. I will tell you that.
