What Makes a college great?

What makes a college great?

According to Money Magazine, to parents it’s a school that delivers top-quality education at reasonable cost.  To students, however, a truly terrific college offers a small-community atmosphere as well as professors committed both to teaching–not research–and to giving students lots of individual attention, both in and out of the classroom.  In addition, students say that a great college must provide them with a rich social life, plenty of opportunities to live on campus and ample courses.

If, after reading this, you’re saying to yourself, “wow, that description fits Meredith”, you’d be correct! With a small community-oriented campus and a small professor to student ratio all within one of the most highly desirable cities to live and work in the US, Meredith students truly get the best of many worlds.

Once again, Meredith Alumnae will be hosting a student recruiting day at Meredith on October 13, 2012 called, appropriately, Discover Meredith. For those of you who recruited for this event earlier this year, thank you for making it one of the most successful recruiting events in our history. Our Alumnae Association received numerous “thank yous” from parents and professors alike for creating a truly meaningful event for prospective students to Meredith.

We need your help now to recruit for the next generation of Meredith women. Please click here to see a full schedule for the day and register to attend.

Thank you for all you do.

– Elizabeth Dove, ‘84, President, Meredith College Alumnae Association
