Mid-day Showcase Focusing on Critical Thinking
This element of CSA day is held in Carlyle Campbell Library; students are encouraged to think about the role of the library in supporting student achievement. Meredith community members are invited to stop by after lunch for cupcakes and fun from 12:30 to 2 p.m. President Hartford will present brief remarks at 1 p.m.
This event was created to celebrate interesting student work that may not be captured during other parts of the day, including leadership and service achievements and co-curricular work. There will be great variety to the achievements shared; all will be connected to thinking critically.

Because Meredith’s Celebrating Student Achievement Day falls near Earth Day each year, the event attempts to connect student environmental and sustainability work to the campus theme as well. Come learn how students are thinking green at Meredith.
The showcase is collaboratively supported by Student Leadership and Service, the Office of Sustainability, the Office of Events, PRISM and Carlyle Campbell Library.
