Alumnae / Get Involved

Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in the Alumnae Association, and we encourage your participation in the following events and programs:

Alumnae Reunion Weekend

All alumnae are invited to attend Alumnae Reunion Weekend. However, classes celebrate special class reunion on a five-year cycle. For example, all classes ending in a 2 or 7 will be celebrating a special class reunion in May of 2017. Alumnae Reunion Weekend invites alumnae to reminisce with friends and relive their Meredith days. Over the course of a weekend, alumnae are invited to a special class party, the Annual Meeting of the Alumnae Association, individual class events and an Alumnae Worship Service. Alumnae also have the option to stay on campus in the Residence Halls.

Chapters

Chapters allow alumnae to gather within specific geographical areas and typically meet two times per year. We have more than 30 alumnae chapters, so there may be one in your area. If there is not an active chapter in your area and you would be interested in starting one, please contact the Alumnae Office.

Career and Networking Opportunities

The Networking Angels group offers regular opportunities to network in a social setting. Each meeting highlights an alumna-owned business as well job seekers and success stories. The purpose of the group is to support fellow alumnae professionally.

Alumnae are encouraged to use the resources in Academic & Career Planning as you job search or seek career changes. In addition to individual appointments, alumnae may take advantage of job fairs, job postings, resume and interview advice. You can also become a member of the LinkedIn group managed by Academic and Career Planning. This resource will link you to other Meredith Angels.

Alumnae Travel Program

The Alumnae Travel program allows alumnae and friends to travel along with the Meredith community. MC in NYC is an annual trip to New York City each November. International trips have included: Sansepolcro, Italy, Paris, France, London, England and a Scandinavian cruise. Typically, the College offers one domestic and one international trip per academic year.

ARMS: Alumnae Recruitment of Meredith Students

There are many opportunities for alumnae to assist in new-student recruitment at Meredith College.  As an ARMS volunteer, alumnae have the opportunity to assist our admission staff at college fairs both in-state and out-of-state, correspond with prospective and admitted students via e-mail, assist at on and off-campus recruitment events, and refer students to the College via our online referral form.  The Office of Admissions values the potential impact of alumnae for building and shaping each new class of Meredith students, so we welcome alumnae to become a part of ARMS.  Please contact Anna Buryk, Assistant Director of Admissions, at buryka1@meredith.edu for more information.
