Strong Alumnae

Ask anyone what Meredith women have in common, and the answer will be "confidence." That's no accident. Meredith College has been educating strong, confident women for more than a century. And the thousands of women who have graduated since Meredith's founding have made an indelible impact on our world.

Among our alumnae you'll find a N.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice. The first woman and first African-American officer to hold command roles in the Chaplain Corps of the U.S. Navy. The first woman to hold a leadership position in the N.C. House and Senate. A Tony Award-Winning actor. Fulbright scholars. Professors, deans and presidents at some of the top colleges in the country. Teachers of the Year. The first female U.S. Attorney in North Carolina. Business leaders. Entrepreneurs. All going strong.
