Student Organizations

Model UN
The Meredith Model United Nations Club is open to all Meredith College students who want to develop cultural understanding and participate in intercollegiate diplomacy. The club sends a delegation each fall to the Atlanta-based Southern Regional Model United Nations conference, where students have represented Bangladesh, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Russia and the International Alliance for Women, while competing against other colleges and universities from across the country. Meredith delegations have earned awards for superior performance.

The History and Politics Club
The History and Politics Club is open to all interested students. The club is a true matriarchy—its leaders emerge from the consensus of its members each year. The club sponsors a variety of events on and off campus, ranging from a trip to Washington, D.C. to movie nights and guest speakers on current topics and issues.

Phi Alpha Theta Honor Society
Phi Alpha Theta, the national honor society for history students, inducts new members twice each year. Students must have at least a 3.0 overall GPA and at least a 3.5 in 12 or more hours of history courses beyond Western Civilization.
