Helping Students Explore Interests and Build Community

At Meredith, students can explore their passion areas, gain a deeper understanding of self, and build a community of friends through Meredith’s vibrant campus life. The Office of Student Leadership and Service (SLS) provides students with opportunities to engage in campus activities, develop and practice leadership skills, and serve the community.  Parents and families can encourage their students to participate in campus programming and co-curricular experiences to make the most of their time at Meredith!  

From joining a campus club to participating in leadership and service programs, there is a wide range of opportunities available.  Students can browse the list of over 100 Meredith student organizations and a calendar of campus activities on MC Connect, Meredith’s student involvement website.  For more information and to receive updates about programs and services coordinated by SLS, follow us on social media (@MeredithSLS).

Meredith students can enjoy the Student Organizations and Services Fair on Wednesday, August 24 from 5 – 7 p.m. on the Meredith Mall to learn about resources available on campus or hang out at the MC Block Party on Friday, August 26 from 5  – 7:30 p.m. at the Meredith Mall to socialize and enjoy campus life. These activities are open to all Meredith students. 

Ways for First-Year Students to Get Involved
First-year students are encouraged to participate in the first Class of 2026 Freshman Class Meeting and the Class of 2026 Freshman Elections process. See the opportunities below for more information.

Freshman Class Meeting:  On August 30, members of the Class of 2026 are asked to attend the first Freshman Class Meeting hosted by the Student Government Association. At this meeting, students will hear important campus-wide/class announcements, learn about traditions, and meet the SGA Executive Board and other organization presidents. Throughout the academic year, routine class meetings will be hosted by the Class of 2026 officers to share additional class updates and build community among classmates. 

Freshman Elections: Serving as an elected freshman class officer is a great way for students to expand their leadership skills and support the Class of 2026! At the beginning of the school year, students will have the opportunity to run for one of the 30+ elected class officer positions. Officer positions range from Class President to Cornhuskin’ Co-Chair. Students interested in running for an elected officer position must attend an Elections Information Session the week of August 29-September 2, coordinated by the SGA Elections Board. During the information session, details will be provided about the election process and requirements for running for an officer position. Members of the Class of 2026 will have the opportunity to vote for their elected class officers on September 19-20.

Parents and families, we appreciate your support by encouraging your Meredith student to participate in campus programming!  Please feel free to contact the SLS office at with any questions.
