Student Engagement at Redlands serve to enhance the overall student experience through programs intended to develop, educate, and entertain. We know our students’ involvements in co-curricular activities are some of their most memorable and transformational experiences.
We believe learning goes beyond the classroom and being involved in student clubs and organizations, student government, or other types of student lead programs are one of the most important and valuable aspects of the college experience. Involvement provides valuable learning and leadership experiences, and helps students to develop personally, intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually.
Social Affairs is the University’s programming board. This group of student directors plan events such as large and small concerts, BINGO, blockbuster movie screenings, free bowling nights, and so much more! They are also responsible for student events during Homecoming. A committee, open to all students, meets weekly to assist with brainstorming program ideas and coordinating the event details.
Each week, join us outside in Hunsaker Plaza for the Whiteboard Wednesday question of the week. We ask, you write. Questions vary weekly and typically relate to a current event or topic. We ask the question, you write your answer, and we snap a photo!
