Dear Campus Organizations,


We know you do a lot for Meredith and wanted to take a moment to acknowledge your contributions. First, we would like to present you with a small Valentine’s Day poem:


Roses are red,

violets are blue,

we know you’re all tired but

campus can’t run without you!


While the last couple years at Meredith have been hard, you have remained steadfast in your commitment to the Meredith community. Just like us, you’re students—we know classes, jobs and participating in organizations is a lot to balance, but you all do it well.


Your presence makes the campus more vibrant, welcoming and unique. Organizations allow students to express themselves, whether that means participating in clubs like Spectrum, religious organizations of all kinds or sharing writing and art in The Colton Review.


Thank you for responding to our emails when you have the time. Interviews can be hard work and we know that you’re all busy, so we appreciate the time and care you have taken to answer our questions throughout the years.


As we continue the rest of this semester, we hope that you continue your commitment to bettering the campus environment knowing that you are appreciated. Meredith College wouldn’t be the same place without each one of its campus organizations.


Sincerely,

Elinor Shelp-Peck and Olivia Slack, Co-Editors in Chief
