I'm originally from Cazenovia, NY. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the State University of New York at Fredonia in Political Science and Economics. After my amazing undergraduate experience, I attended the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB) to receive my Master’s Degree in Higher Education Administration. During my graduate experience, I worked as a Graduate Assistant at Medaille College assisting with programming efforts surrounding student activities, multicultural affairs, orientation and family weekend.

I began my career back in 2012 at Ithaca College as the Student Organization Business Specialist. I oversaw all financial transactions and travel of the recognized student organizations. I regularly met one-on-one with student organization treasurers to help ensure all the financial policies and procedures were clearly understood. I also oversaw the Student Activities Center and was a part of the Leadership Weekend and Jumpstart planning teams! For three years, I left IC to serve as the Program Coordinator in the Office of Student Activities at Syracuse University where I oversaw the re-registration and new registration process for student organizations. I advised the Student Association as well as approximately 40 other student organizations on campus. In Fall 2017, I've come back to join the OSE family once more as the Associate Director of Student Involvement, overseeing all student organizations. I'm so excited to be back!

Personally, I love spending time with friends, trying out new restaurants, reading, and continuing what I view as a serious relationship with my TV shows.

If you have any questions about student organizations or just want to chat, feel free to stop by the OSE office (my office is located in the Student Activities Center), e-mail me at meholland@ithaca.edu or call (607) 274-3222.
