Meredith Offering Expedited Admissions Process
The Office of Admissions is offering members of the high school Class of 2012 an expedited admissions process this summer during three scheduled Personal Admission Days, June 11, July 2 and July 3.
Prospective students who attend a Personal Admission Day must meet the same admission requirements as all those who apply to Meredith. The process is simply expedited.
Personal Admission Days will include admission counselor interviews, tours of campus, meetings with faculty and coaches, and financial assistance meetings. Visit http://www.meredith.edu/admissions/personal_admission_days/ for more information.
Ashley Britton, ’03, senior manager at Johnson Lambert & Co, LLC., and Meredith Lawhon, ’01, global head of human resources at Bayer CropScience, were named members of the 2012 class. The 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards honor promising young business people under the age of 40 in the Triangle. These professionals are recognized for their career accomplishments and their community service.
Britton earned a Bachelor of Science in accounting at Meredith. Lawhon holds an undergraduate degree in business management from Meredith, and completed Meredith’s MBA program in 2007.
The Meredith College MBA Program was a sponsor of 40 Under 40 program, which included a banquet honoring the 2012 class and a special section in The Triangle Business Journal’s May 18 issue.
During the Spring Semester of 2012, Meredith College’s Energy and Water Conservation Program (EWCP) organized an energy competition among the Residence Halls on campus (Faircloth, Brewer, Vann, Stringfield, Heilman and Poteat).
The purpose of this energy competition was to see which Residence Hall could reduce their consumption of electric energy by the highest percentage in a 24-hour time period. This energy competition began on April 20 at 12 a.m. and ended on April 20 at 11:59 p.m. Each Residence Hall’s electric energy consumption (in kilowatt-hours) on the competition day, April 20, was compared to their daily baseline of electric energy consumption, respectively. The daily baseline for each Residence Hall was determined by averaging the electric energy consumption from the previous six school days. The results of the competition are displayed in the graph below:
Congratulations to Poteat Residence Hall for winning the 2012 Energy Competition at Meredith College. And for their hard efforts to conserve energy, Poteat was awarded to a celebratory doughnut party. Thanks to all the students, faculty and staff to help make this first energy competition at Meredith College a very successful energy competition.
And an extra special thanks goes out to Betsy Matthews, former Energy Fellow at Meredith, who worked very hard to coordinate this effort.
