123 YEARS | Going Strong

Founded in 1891, Meredith College opened with just over 200 women. Today, our student body has grown to nearly 2,000 students, including men who are part of our graduate programs – and we have become one of America's Best Colleges (according to U.S. News, Forbes and The Princeton Review). One hundred and twenty-three years later, Meredith is still going strong.
