Donna Wilson Thagard had the great idea to getting her group of friends for a meal.  The group had a wonderful night with a lot of laughter while catching up. The group plans on meeting again after Easter.


Do you and your friends have a month or bi-monthly supper club?  Do you all celebrate your birthdays by having a girls night out?  Do you have an annual beach or mountain trip?  We would love to hear about the events and traditions that you and your Meredith girls have.  Please send your photos and stories to us at alumnaeblog@meredith.edu. Each group who submits a story & photo will be entered to win a group prize-pack from the Alumnae Office for your next event/dinner/trip!

Happy Founders’ Day!

Please join us in wishing Meredith College a very happy 122nd birthday today!

Each year, a day is set aside for Meredith to honor its founding on February 27, 1891. Founders’ Day is marked by a convocation address and remembrance of Thomas Meredith, Baptist leader and advocate for women’s education. The College’s name was changed in 1909 from Baptist University for Women (Baptist Female University, 1891–1904) to honor his work in founding the College.

In honor of her birthday, we encourage each of you to take a minute to remember all of the reasons why Meredith College is such a special place.
