The Office of Student Engagement encourages students to engage in learning without limits by advancing opportunities that allow for growth and development within and beyond the classroom setting. Through partnerships with a number of academic and student affairs departments on campus we promote integrative learning, and assist students with connecting to College resources and programs including: student activities, student organization development, leadership programming, fraternities and sororities, community service, diversity and multicultural education.
Green Terror Programs (GTP) is the student run programming board on campus that provides students with entertaining, education and social campus-wide programming throughout the year. Students who are members of the Green Terror Programs organization meet each week to choose and market events as well as determine the best programs to bring to campus.
Past events include: Bingo for Books, outdoor movies, Bob Ross Paint Night, Pub Trivia, hypnotists and magicians, Duck Hunt, Stuff-A-Buddy, Escape Rooms, Petting Zoo.
GTP also sponsors the Weekend Blitz Series. These trips are $15 or less and take students to different attractions around the Mid-Atlantic or bring quality events to campus. The fee covers transportation and the price to get into the event. Some events include: Hershypark, D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival, A Day in Philly, Spooky Skate (a roller skating rink brought to campus), Orioles Baseball Games, Capitals Hockey Games, and Musicals at the Hippodrome in Baltimore.
Green Terror Programs is a great way to boost a student's resume and help them learn long term planning, event organization budgeting and how to work with a group of peers to produce an event. GTP is also open to different event suggestions. Feel free to come to the Office of Student Engagement or to a Green Terror Programs meeting to find out how to get involved.

The Fraternity and Sorority Community at McDaniel College has a long tradition of fostering student leadership and development. Greek-letter organizations have been a part of student life here since the 1920s. Since then, students have chosen to join fraternities and sororities for the dimension it adds to their college experience. Greek-letter organizations were founded on the ideals of scholarship, leadership, community service and friendship. McDaniel College’s thirteen (13) Greek-letter organizations continue to hold these ideals today. Currently, 23% of undergraduate students choose to participate in the Greek Community.
