On Saturday, September 22, the Office of Admissions welcomed 139 high school seniors and their guests to campus for the first Senior Visitation Day of the year. Students were invited to “Think Outside the Box” at Meredith by attending a classroom experience, taking a campus tour, and hearing from current students, faculty and staff.
The Office of Admissions appreciates all of the assistance and support received from Meredith’s faculty and staff in helping to make this event successful. We are excited about the members of the Class of 2017 and thank you for your participation in helping to recruit them to the College!
Please save the date for the next Senior Visitation Day on Monday, October 29.
All benefits-eligible employees are invited to attend Meredith’s Employee Benefits Fair on October 16 from 1–3:30 p.m. in Belk Dining Hall.
Meredith’s open enrollment period for 2013 benefits begins October 16 and ends Friday, NOVEMBER 16. No enrollment forms will be accepted after November 16, which is the Friday BEFORE Thanksgiving.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the benefits available to employees in 2013.
You can meet and talk with our benefit vendors, community perk providers, representatives from on campus and others. We will also have some yummy snacks, a healthy cooking demonstration by our nutrition students, and great door prizes!
Here are a few additional things to keep in mind as you consider your options for 2013:
Meredith College has been named to the Military Friendly Schools ® list by Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey results that comprise the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel this month.
