Middle East Studies/Arabic Students


While your academic understanding of the Middle East is developed in the classroom, the Middle East Studies/Arabic Student Association (MESAS) is our on-campus group dedicated to helping you make the most of your college experience and build your resume. MESAS organizes special guest lectures, hosts social events where you can meet others in the program, and other events, including a mentoring program, all designed to help broaden your cultural understanding of the region and introduce you to our amazing MESA faculty members.

MESA students are strongly encouraged to participate, but we welcome all majors. Volunteers are always welcome! To get involved and learn more, contact the officers.
