Very wonderful school, professors and staff are very involved in student's education and genuinely wants to see them succeed. The traditions are great, the community is tightly knit and there are many friendly people here. The academics are nice as well, some classes are more challenging than others but it is like that at any university. My advice is: if you're thinking of coming to Meredith, do it! You will not regret it.

Meredith College is a great school with wonderful and caring professors. The classes are small enough to allow you to get to know your professors and your fellow students. Meredith has a small college atmosphere but also has lots of activities and many things to do nearby. Many different majors are offered in the undergraduate program. A new major that was added recently is Hospitality. They have also created a 5 year MBA program. Meredith College is located in Raleigh, North Carolina-near North Carolina State University. Meredith is an all-women's college for undergrad and has coed graduate programs. On-campus housing apartments are available in addition to the dorms.
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!
