Middle Eastern Students Society

The Middle Eastern Students Society (MESS) was established to celebrate Middle Eastern culture on a broader level. We aim to create a community of Melbourne University students who are Middle Eastern or interested in Middle Eastern culture.  Through our events, we hope to enrich the University experience of many students and create an inclusive and supportive community. We aim to promote Middle Eastern culture in order to enhance students’ understanding and appreciation of it. To stay up to date with our meetings and events, become a member now!
