What Traditions Are Most Popular With Students?
As part of our summer series, Meredith College’s Office of Admissions asked a group of rising sophomores, juniors and seniors to share their favorite Meredith tradition.
Of course, Cornhuskin' was a popular response, but many Meredith traditions have made an impression on our students. Here's what they have to say:
• “I think that, so far, my favorite Meredith tradition would have to be Fire and Water Dinner, but I’m really looking forward to Tea for Two!” –Kristen Gallagher, ’13
•“There are so many to choose from that it is hard to even answer that! I would have to go with Cornhuskin’. It is a lot of fun to get to watch everyone out there and I would definitely suggest getting involved in it!” –Allie Hargrove, ’11
•“My favorite Meredith tradition would have to be Cornhuskin’. Freshman year is a tough year for Cornhuskin’ because you have no idea what to expect or even what to do. However, it’s a great time to spend quality time with your classmates and get to know a lot of people.” –Christina Cole, ’13
•Cornhuskin’!—Danielle Stott, ’11
•“Cornhuskin’ and Class Day” —Sydney Sauers, ’12
•“Of course, Cornhuskin’ is amazing! But other than Cornhuskin’, my favorite tradition probably has been Guardian Angel in the fall of my sophomore year. It was so much fun to spend such cherished time with my dad, and watching all the dads dance was really fun too!” –Emily Pappas, ’12
•“Definitely Cornhuskin', but Big Sis/Lil Sis is a very close second. Both the traditions open up so many opportunities to get involved on campus and meet new, amazing people that will turn out to be life-long friends. Both traditions really show that Meredith College is a great support system and big family.” —Chloe Williams, ’13
•“My favorite tradition by far is Class Day. The sophomores put so much dedication and hard work into that day for their Big Sis class. The Senior Class takes the time to really reflect on their four years. While it is so sweet, it can also be a very emotional day, as it is the last step before graduation on Sunday. And the event is just gorgeous. White dresses, daisies, and the Meredith Amphitheater? What could be better? --Samantha Bryant, ’11
•"I loved Fire and Water Dinner. It was a great way to celebrate the end of your first year of college. The night was so much fun from getting dressed up to spending time with all your friends to remembering all of the good times you had.” –Allison Huber, ’12
For this series, we’ll post responses to questions about the Meredith experience, academics and campus life each week throughout the summer.
Next week’s questions: “Have you studied abroad, or do you plan to do so?” and “What is your favorite place on campus?”
