International Students / President’s Message
Greetings from Meredith College!
Thank you for your interest in Meredith College, one of the largest women’s colleges in the United States with approximately 1, 700 undergraduate students and 300 graduate students.
Meredith has a rich 125-year history as a leading educator of women, encouraging them to understand and develop their strengths as leaders and global citizens. Ranked #2 in academic excellence among women’s colleges in the US, we particularly welcome international students to join our community of global scholars as we explore historical and current thinking regarding all sorts of subjects from language and communication to business, the arts, sciences, religion and politics, family dynamics, fashion and interior design and more!
In particular, we believe you will find the Meredith College community to be warm and welcoming as we work to create a “sisterhood” of women supporting other women and eager to understand the customs and cultures of others. We are fortunate to be located in Raleigh, North Carolina, one of the most successful, vibrant, diverse and safe cities in the country. Just a short drive from the extraordinarily beautiful mountains and the beaches of North Carolina, we are the cultural, political, artistic, educational, and technological hub of the state.
We encourage you to contact our Admissions Office or the Office of International Programs to learn more about joining this incredible community of women eager to learn from outstanding faculty, staff, and friends.
