Throwback Thursday

In honor of the Class of 2016 celebrating Class Day tomorrow, here is a photo of Class Day in 1964. The Class of 1966 honored their big sister class on this day at the end of their sophomore year. We look forward to welcoming the Class of 1966 back to campus for their 50th Reunion next weekend!

Class of 2016 Inducted into Alumnae Association

Members of the Class of 2016 were formally inducted into the Meredith College Alumnae Association on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at the Senior Induction Ceremony in Jones Chapel. A variety of guest speakers welcomed them into the Association and shared advice on ways to stay connected to Meredith after graduation. The students listened to words of wisdom from Caitlyn DeBona ’14, Bailey Benge ’16, Hilary Allen ’01, Grace Sugg ’07, Dana Sumner, Emily Tuck ’60, Ashley Henderson ’97, and Claire Sullivan Slaughter ’72. Announcements were also made pertaining to the Class of 2016’s senior class gift and class doll. Jacqueline Lawrence Huber ’78 accepted their doll, Milly Meredith Stokes, into the doll collection. The doll was named in honor of their class’s senior Cornhuskin’ theme, Thomas Meredith, and their two class advisers, Meredith Moore Moody ’10 and Brandon Stokes. After the candlelit induction ceremony led by Alumnae Association president Claire Sullivan Slaughter ’72, the Bathtub Ring led the singing of the Alma Mater. A reception followed in the Science and Math Building Atrium where students could take pictures with the class doll and enjoy refreshments provided by the Office of Alumnae Relations and the Office of Career Planning. It was an exciting evening as the Class of 2016 was warmly welcomed into the Meredith College Alumnae Association. The Senior Induction Ceremony was coordinated by the Office of Alumnae Relations’ spring intern, Madison Junker ’16.

Greetings from Meredith!

Like me, I hope you have enjoyed celebrating Meredith’s 125th anniversary. I am incredibly proud of our alma mater’s strong history and even stronger future. I hope that you will continue the celebration and exciting MEREmentum, by joining us on campus for Alumnae Reunion Weekend – May 13-15, 2016.

All alumnae, whether or not you are celebrating a 5 year class reunion, are invited to join us this year to mark our 125th Anniversary. It is a great time to see your big sisters, little sisters, and classmates, teammates, and friends from whatever years!

There will be some special additions to this year’s Reunion schedule that you will not want to miss. In particular, we’ll have affinity gatherings for alumnae athletes, teachers and Wings graduates on Saturday morning. The State of the College featuring remarks from Dr. Jo Allen ’80 will highlight Meredith’s academic year and plans for our STRONG future, including updates on Beyond Strong The Campaign for Meredith. Friday evening’s Courtyard Party will once again feature the sounds of Band of Oz. And on Sunday, Gloria Boyd Johnson ’80 will serve as our speaker during the Worship Service, which will also feature an Alumnae Choir.

It’s an exciting year for Meredith, and we hope all alumnae will return home for Reunion Weekend to celebrate 125 years of Going Strong. On line registration for all on campus events is now open. To register online, please click here.

Thank you for all that you do to keep our alma mater GOING STRONG! I look forward to seeing you in May as we join together to celebrate 125 years.
