Student Party

Student Party allows students to take an active role in participating with events and other happenings on campus. Student Party is in charge of all of MIAD’s Traditions, which include the Welcome Back Street Festival, the First Student Party Meeting, Spirit Week, the Halloween Party, and the Fall Philanthropy Event in the Fall semester, and the Movie Marathon, the Spring Philanthropy Event, the Spring Dance, and the End-of-Year Street Festival in the Spring semester. Student Party also assists and collaborates with all of MIAD’s clubs and organizations.

Anyone is able to join Student Party at any time. Additionally, the student-held position of Student Engagement Liaison acts as a touchpoint between Student Party members and Student Engagement Staff, giving a voice to the wider MIAD population.

Ready to join the party? Student Party meets every Thursday during common hour (11:00 AM–12:30 PM) in room 495C.

Student Party is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the larger student body and MIAD community, and strives to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. If you have any questions, comments, or curiosities, please reach out to us at
