The MESC is a place to unite in friendship, celebrate Middle Eastern culture with our campus community, and find common ground. Ultimately, it’s a place to serve the needs of Middle Eastern students and create an even more inclusive and respectful atmosphere at UCR. We look forward to welcoming you to #MESCUCR!
