Meredith College has again been named one of the best colleges in the Southeast by The Princeton Review, a nationally known education services company. It is one of 136 institutions The Princeton Review recommends in its "Best in the Southeast" section of its website feature, "2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region." Visit www.princetonreview.com and search for Meredith College in order to view Meredith’s full profile.
The Princeton Review’s “regional best” colleges constitute only 25% of the four-year colleges in the U.S. The company selects the best regional colleges and universities from hundreds of institutions reviewed in each region. The primary consideration is the institution’s excellent academic program, along with what students attending the schools reported about their campus experiences.
For this project, The Princeton Review asks students attending the institution to rate their own school on several issues — from the accessibility of their professors to quality of the campus food — and answer questions about themselves, their fellow students and their campus life.
The colleges The Princeton Review chose for its "Best in the Southeast" designations are located in twelve states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in its "2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region" list hierarchically or by region or in various categories.
Meredith Named a College of Distinction, “Bravo” Winner
Meredith has also been named a 2012-13 College of Distinction, and will be featured on CollegesofDistinction.com and in the Colleges of Distinction e-Guidebook.
Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction by high school college counselors. Schools included on the list show commitment to four distinctions – Student Engagement, Great Teaching, Vibrant Communities and Successful Outcomes. The next edition of the Colleges of Distinction Guidebook will be published in early fall 2012.
In addition to these honors, Meredith was also voted “Metro Bravo” winner in Metro Magazine’s 2012 Bravo Awards in the category of Best Private College. Meredith has earned this accolade for three years running.
