Residence Life Meet-Ups

Introduced at Fredonia in Fall 2015 and inspired by, Residence Life Meet-ups are informal, low-risk social events designed for students to connect with each other. Most meet-ups are free of charge, and all Fredonia students are welcome.

This web page is now updated with Fall 2022 meet-ups!  If you are interested, you can also glance through our meet-ups archive, which dates back to Fall 2015.

New students, we are so excited for you to come to Fredonia!  Returning students, thanks so much for your support of meet-ups in the past, and we hope to see you at some meet-ups in Fall 2022, as well!
