Women's College Going Strong

This past weekend was Move-In Day at Meredith College. The Class of 2017 includes 420 students! 

Check out the video!

"Members of this class come from 19 states and 18 countries, including Afghanistan, Argentina, Bermuda, Canada, China, Congo, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Honduras, Kenya, Korea, Laos, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, Saudi Arabia, Thailand and the United Kingdom.

The Class of 2017 includes 40 honors scholars, and more than 180 students in the IMPACT Raleigh program, which includes students from Wake County and out-of-state students who provide service and work each semester in their new home of Raleigh.

Meredith is also welcoming 33 students who will be in the second class of Meredith College Teaching Fellows. After participating in the NC Teaching Fellows program since 1987, Meredith launched its own program in 2012 after the statewide program was phased out."
