Students interested in exploring Middle Eastern culture can participate in the Redlands chapter of the Middle Eastern Cross Cultural Association (MECCA). The organization focuses in part on addressing political and current event topics relating to all areas of the Middle East.

The group also strives to enhance cultural awareness and understanding on campus through a variety of Middle Eastern themed events and gatherings.

The organization is open to all students, regardless of ethnicity.

There are more than 1,700 trees on the University of Redlands campus.

In April 2010, it was designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Redlands is among just three other colleges or universities in California to receive this designation.
