Their welcoming environment and supportive community is perfect for helping me grow and flourish as an artist, honing and perfecting my skills to the highest possible quality. The campus life is very fun and exciting, plus they have an excellent cafeteria and gym- it's especially awesome that they have a driving range for golf! The teachers I've met are kind and welcoming, and based on the classroom size they make sure you're not a face lost in the crowd; they want to have a personal relationship with you and make sure that you succeed in the career you want to aspire for. Overall, Meredith proves to be an excellent environment for obtaining your degree!

The academic side of Meredith is outstanding. The teachers really care about you, and the networking opportunities are endless! They work close with students to make sure they are building a strong resume so they can apply their knowledge as soon as they graduate. The only downfall to the college is it doesn’t have many extracurricular activities for minorities. The school is a PWI, and most of the traditions and events are tailored for Caucasians. (The first class of African American women graduated in ). The party life on campus is bad since it is an all girls’ private school, but the college is located near four universities and Downtown Raleigh so there are still opportunities to have fun!!
I LOVE everything about Meredith. The people, the place and my classes are great. Those classes defintely challenges you. Food is ok. I love the student center and I will go there anyday!
