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.
Review Meredith College
Meredith is an all-womens college located in Raleigh, North Carolina near North Carolina State University. The classes are small and the academic life is great. Being a small private school, it's a little difficult to get involved, and not much happens on campus over the weekend. However, the traditions are strong and so is the "sisterhood". It's a very empowering place with people who want to lift you up.
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.
