Meredith College is a safe space for women. The campus is free from harassment and discrimination, and the students, faculty, and staff are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment.
One of the things that makes Meredith such a safe space is its small size. With just over 1,500 undergraduate students, everyone knows everyone else. This creates a sense of community and belonging that is hard to find at larger schools.
Another reason why Meredith is a safe space is its focus on women's empowerment. The college offers a variety of programs and resources that help women develop their leadership skills and reach their full potential.
Meredith College is a great school for students who have been more sheltered growing up and may not be ready for a big party campus. It is all girls so the sisterhood values are real. You won't find a party scene there because the people who are into that go to the neighboring big university but on campus, everyone seems pretty innocent. There are different clubs and organizations but not too much action in general. I feel very safe walking around campus though because it's all girls and very quiet. You can go on runs if you want and not worry and possible stalkers. I think it's just meant to be a chill school to just get your degree and be done with it but it truly depends on how deep you want to get into traditions and other things. It is all about what you make of it.

As a college student, if I could go back in time and tell myself as a high school senior,what I know now, I would talk about a lot of things. Being at a private college, financial responsibility and work ethic are both very important. I didn't work as hard as I should have in high school, making the transition to college harder. I would tell myself that the work in high school was actually preparing me for the college challenge. In college, no, you don't have to go to class and you don't have to do your homework, but it is something that you are paying for, making you more appreciative, and more focused on being successful. I would also tell myself to be more open minded coming into college. I came from a small town, and my college is very diverse. In becoming more open minded, I have made so many new friends and established more relationships than I could ever have imagined as a high schooler. I have made friends with people that I normally wouldn't have associated with, which I feel is a huge accomplishment, and a step towards growing up.
Well all my classmates are females, and many of them come from very weathy families. So sometimes coming from a family that is not weathy is a challenge to fit in. Most people here do not work two jobs and pay for everything on their own, because their parents just hand them the money.
Small campus, all girls
My school is an all women's college, I believe to truly gain the college experience you need a coed environment.
Meredith is a single gendered community where learning really is the most important thing that is taking place and almost everyone equally respects that goal.
How academically challenging it really is.
The right person for this college would be a woman who is strongly focused on academics and who comes from a predominately upper class family.
Meredith College is a unique school that is best known for its traditions. There are events throughout the four years of college that every student is able to participate in. These events include Cornhuskin, a night full of skits and dancing, Ring Dinner, the night that every junior is given their Meredith ring, Tea for Two, an evening that Meredith girls are able to have tea and cakes with her mother, as well as many more unique events. Meredith College is also known for its beautiful, yet small, inviting campus.
I tell my friends that it is a good school and it is a nice place because many things are included in tuitution. We receive laptops, our laundry is free, the food is not too bad, the campus is very safe, it is nice to wear sweats to class, and not have to wear make-up everywhere.
The diversity and the fun we have here. Im very comfortable in my classes.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the cost. Tuition went up nearly $2000 for next year and it is leaving me with the struggle to come up with the money to come back next year and get the education that I deserve.
Everyone is very accepted and is no one is condoned for their differences. Meredith accpets everyone and this is a non-discriminatory campus.
