On October 27, 2021, the Alumnae Association hosted a Fall Pop-Up event for current Meredith students.
During this event, students received goodie bags with candy, Meredith stickers, and Halloween socks. Hot chocolate and apple cider were also offered in a to-go capacity. Students were given the option of stopping by between 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
The goal of the Fall Pop-Up event was to connect students to the Alumnae Association by providing them with treats. This event garnered an attendance of over 350 students during the day. Alumnae Association President Courtney Allen, ’10, attended and helped pass out bags.
Chair of Student Relations Jennifer Christenberry, ’92, who has helped at past events, said, “We had a very enthusiastic response to our Alumnae Association Halloween Pop-Up Event! Students lined up early for hot chocolate, cider and treats and were so appreciative. It was great to have alumnae make a connection with current students.”
Students also enjoyed the event. Anna Prince, ‘24, shared, “I enjoyed how friendly everyone at the event was. I always love being able to celebrate my school spirit with pop-up events.”
The Alumnae Association intends to host more pop-up events similar to this one in the future, including an event around Valentine’s Day.
The Alumnae Association also provided colorful popcorn in individual bags to students following Cornhuskin’ on November 5.
