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.
