Meredith College has a wonderful support system with all of its teachers and alumni there ready to help you succeed. I love that Meredith is such a small campus because it allows for the students and the teachers to become close and get to know each other. At Meredith you don't feel like a number, the staff go out of their way to make you feel like a person and they are always available to help you when you have an issue. The campus is beautiful, it becomes very easy to lose yourself in the scenery. I love Meredith and would reccomend it to everyone.

Personally, I sometimes have a hard time dealing with some of the girls here, but that's to be expected at any college. However, one wrongly accused me of cheating, and although the honor council declared me not guilty with no sanctions, my professor refused to change my grade. Watch out for girls like these!
Meredith College is a wonderful school with lots of opportunities to participate in extracurriculars and other local opportunities. The academics taught are exceptional and the small class sizes make it easy for teachers and students to connect. Being located in the middle of Raleigh near multiple other college campuses give an opportunity to connect and network with multiple other college students. While Meredith is somewhat secluded and safe from the dangers of Raleigh by its gates and setup the school can sometimes feel small and somewhat boring.
