Student Activities Committee

The Student Activities Committee is responsible for the planning and implementation of student entertainment and activities held on the Methodist University campus. This includes comedians, giveaways, Homecoming, Spring Fling, and movies.

Our Student Activities program has previously been ranked in the Top 5 in the nation by Campus Activities Magazine.

All full-time students are encouraged to participate in this open organization. Involvement in campus programs and activities is vital to a well-rounded education and directly influences students’ college satisfaction, academic achievement, and persistence toward graduation.

Our meetings are open to MU students and happen every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Student Involvement Center of the Berns Student Center. We can offer student employment to those who qualify so you could get paid to plan and work our events! Want to know more?
