The Class of 2016 moved into Meredith College’s residence halls on Saturday, August 11, 2012, getting their first taste of the friendly community spirit that is a hallmark of the College. And while the entire campus came out to welcome first year students to their new home, a significant part of that greeting came from current Meredith students, many of whom recalled the excitement and challenges of their own move-in day.
Chief Student Advisor Brittany Murray, ’13, said she remembers pulling into the front drive at Meredith and feeling the excitement on campus right away.
“Everyone was smiling and welcoming me to Meredith. I remember looking around as I moved into my residence hall and thinking, ‘These girls are going to be my best friends,” said Murray. more
