(More) New Clubs on the Block

As we begin the spring semester, new clubs are springing up on campus. These organizations were proposed during the fall 2022 semester and are considered "developmental organizations" by the SGA Senate. They have until reading day of fall 2023 to meet all requirements and be deemed a fully active organization. Below are some of the developmental organizations this year.

Healthier Meredith Minds (HMM) is a club whose goal is “to assist the Meredith community [to] better their mental health, mostly via education, self-care activities and collaborative events with other campus groups,” HMM president Alysia Rosenweig said. “HMM is important because our top focus is on anxiety, depression and stress, which are major mental health issues for college students. We are planning this semester to have an event every month, switching from member events that focus on more education and coping skills, to campus-wide [events that] will be more self-care events and activities.” HMM's first meeting is on Friday, Jan. 20, at 10 a.m. in the movement lab.

If you like anime, manga or cosplay, then the Meredith Anime Angels is the right club for you. The Herald interviewed Brianna Long, Class of 2025, to learn more about the club. “As of right now, we plan on doing several fun activities that will take place during [the] next year,” Long said. “These activities include a sewing workshop, an EVA Foam workshop for armor, anime nights, anime [and] manga trivia and so much more!” According to Long, the main goal of the club is to create a “safe, fun learning environment for those who are new and old fans of anime, manga or cosplay.”

Delight Ministries is a Christian-based club that focuses on Bible study. According to Co-Team Director and Social Media Manager Consecpcion Cruz-Valencia, “Delight is a community for students to grow in relationships with others, ask difficult questions, and find a strong community of Christians and non-Christians alike.” Their kickoff event on Jan. 26th in Harris 102 at 7 p.m. will include conversations about “the new study in which [they] will dive into this semester to help guide [their] conversations and discussions.” They will have various fun activities planned, such as door prizes, giveaways, snacks, drinks and merch at the kickoff event.

Other new developmental organizations include a Pre-Law Club, Meredith Students for Life, Transferring into Angels and Child Life Club.
