Meredith Entertainment Associa
tion held an indoor picnic for students
on Wednesday night that was a huge
“It looked like everyone was hav-
ingablast,” said Katherine Davis, Presi
dent of MEA.
Everyone chowed down on the
potato bar and other goodies selected
by MEA and then worked off the calo
ries by dancing and singing popular
Jamie Morris and Sara Flowers, the
CoChairs for the picnic, are two of the
25 members of MEA. Each is respon
sible to chair an activity during the
“The chairs did a wonderful job as
they have done with every picnic they
have put on this year,” said Davis.
There is a lot to look forward to m
the coming months. MEA is having

“We tt^nt to do something to give
students a break from tests and studies
that is on campus and free of cost, ” said
With each year , MEA adds some
thing new to every event to make it
better. It takes alMut three years to
have an event really take off the ground,
said Davis. Fall Fest, that took place in
September, has expanded to include
two bands, games, rides, and food.
It takes about a month to plan an
activity but the bigger events like Fall
Fest and the White Iris Ball require at
least two months of preparation.
Communication is very important
within the organization. It is really
important to give members incentive
and motivation so there is a sense of
unity, said Davis.
In August the members go on a
beach retreat to brainstorm and get to
know one another before they begin
to plan activities.
The club also went to the Cary
Ropes Course to focus on team build
“It was nice to see the group closer
and more tight-knit,” said Davis.
The purpose of MEA is to provide
fun, entertainment, and social interac
tion for students and faculty at Meredith
College by providing on campus and
off campus activities with a majority of
the events being free.
Members of MEA are required to
work one hour per week in he bal
loon gallery, attend meetings every
Friday at 10 a.m. for brainstorming
and planning events, and participate
in every event.
“Everyone at Meredith is a mem
ber of MEA and is free to attend all
meetings at anytime to provide input
and new ideas for Meredith College,”
The current issues of change that
has been facing Meredith College in
the past few weeks has made an inv
pact on MEA.
“I really feel positive about the
changes taking place at Meredith. In
stead of being three separate groups
— the trustees, faculty, staff and stu
dents—we are beginning to break
down barriers and communicate bet
ter with each other so the change on
campus will be successful to all
people. We are working on getting
the feculty and President more in
volved in the events. President Weems
has expressed an interest in becom
ing involved,” said Davis.
Presently MEA needs help with
their publicity, anyone interested in
becoming involved can call Katherine
(7982) or Heather (7840).
“We always remember to have a
good time. Never forget to have a
gpod time,” said Davis.
