Student Association

The MEU Student Association

Every undergraduate student registered for six or more credits becomes a voting member of Middle East University Student Association (MEUSA). This organization, guided by a constitution, allows for democratic student leadership and functions as a liaison between the students and the instructional faculty and administration.

The MEUSA has representation on certain university committees; it sponsors social, recreational, and scholarly activities, and it coordinates the publication of the University’s yearbook, Pine Echoes.
