Office of Student Engagement

About Us

Mission Statement

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.


Oversight Areas

Green Terror Programs

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 comedians, market events, and determine the best programs to bring to campus.

Past events include: Comedian Christian Finnegan from VH1's Best Week Ever, for Books, outdoor movies, Superbowl Party, Improv show, hypnotists and magicians. 

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.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

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 eleven Greek-letter organizations continue to hold these ideals today. Currently, 26% of undergraduate students choose to participate in the Greek Community.
