Meredith Celebrates Past and Future on Founders’ Day
"Meredith College celebrated Founders’ Day on February 27, 2014, marking 123 years since the College’s founding in 1891. The College community took this opportunity to celebrate its success and to look toward the future.
“Today marks Meredith’s 123rd birthday, making this an ideal opportunity for faculty, staff, students, alumnae, and community members to gather to honor Meredith’s past, celebrate recent accomplishments and talk about the ways that Meredith College – an institution that is Going Strong -- will become even stronger in the future,” said President Jo Allen. A member of the Class of 1980, Allen is the first alumna to serve as Meredith’s president.
Meredith College has grown from a student body of 200 women when the College’s doors opened into one of the largest and most successful women’s colleges in the nation, with 2,000 students and 19,000 graduates."
