Meredith’s historic campus is one of its greatest strengths. A draw for prospective students and a point of pride for alumnae, the campus is an undeniable asset.
Nonetheless, it requires an ongoing and significant investment of resources if it is to remain strong. Refurbishing outdated facilities and investing in enhanced information technology are essential to our ability to attract and retain the best students and faculty.

The enhancements to Johnson Hall will create a better experience for prospective and current students and their families – giving them a clear direction of where to find Admisssions, Financial Assistance, the Registrar, and the Business Office.
Johnson Hall, our most iconic building, welcomes students, visitors, and alumnae to the College each day. Gifts from two generous donors will allow the College to make needed renovations, and working with a historical architect has been invaluable as historic elements of the building will be restored. Although these two gifts are unconnected, they are both expressions of love and honor for their Meredith wives, both of whom are members of the Class of 1957.
Strengthslab is a dedicated space that offers a variety of resources related to StrongPoints. In 2014 Wells Fargo Foundation donated $100,000; this gift, along with other donor gifts, were used to create this space for Meredith students.
In 2013, Belk Dining Hall went through extensive renovations on the upper and lower level due to a gift from Aramark and the Parents Council. These enhancements allow for a better dining experience and allow for more flexible spaces for events.
The Class of 1963 fiftieth reunion gift was an addition of nooks on the east side of the Johnson Hall rotunda. These nooks allow visitors and students to sit and wait on appointments or simply enjoy quiet time. Also, the first floor restrooms were renovated by the Class of ’63 and ’62.
Exceptional graduates who use their intelligence and strength to make the world a better place.
