As a rising sophomore at Meredith College, I can honestly say that my freshman year was a huge success! Not only did I succeed academically, but I also was able to create strong connections with my teachers and fellow classmates.
Review Meredith College
My experience as a Meredith student was the perfect college experience. While academically Meredith pushed me with a stringent course load and work, I left extremely prepared for both my profession and life. Meredith empowered me to be a strong, independent, intelligent female who was equipped to handle whatever I might face in my career and life. Having a daughter, I would be thrilled for her to have the opportunity to grow and become the best woman she can be.
I loved my first year at Meredith, the people were so nice, the teachers are pretty cool, and I liked my dorm. All the staff are super personal they really want to get to know you and care if you come to class or not. Because the campus is so small everyone pretty much knows each other which is nice because you'll see at least 2 people you know on the way to class. There are a lot of clubs on campus to get involved in so there are many ways to get involved. People on campus are usually nice there are some condescending snobs but not enough that it will hinder your experience. Overall, I had a great first year with few problems and I definitely recommend coming here.
