For Meiks

This page provides key information on housing arrangements for Meiks, required orientation meetings, and the main advising day. For advising handbooks, group contact information, and other uploaded files, visit ASK.  

Each advising group has the opportunity to go out for a meal off-campus or at the Faculty Club once a year. If going off-campus, the faculty or staff advising partner should pay and be reimbursed using this form. Please note that Meiklejohns cannot be reimbursed for meals; only faculty or staff advisors can.

2017 Meiklejohn Spring Orientation

Meiklejohn Spring Orientation is mandatory for all Meiklejohn Peer Advisors except those abroad or on leave in the spring semester. Spring Orientation will be noon - 5 pm on Tuesday, January 24; we recommend that Meiks arrive back in Providence no later than Monday, January 23 in order to settle into dorms and provide a buffer in case of weather-related travel delays. Meiklejohns living on campus will be able to move in when the dorms re-open on Saturday, January 21, 2017. 

The information below is for Meiks planning ahead for the 2017-18 school year.
