Students Share What They Like Best about Meredith’s Location in Raleigh

Students walking on campus

Meredith’s location in North Carolina’s capital is a great asset to students, providing opportunities for internships, community involvement, and fun.

For this installment of our summer series, students share what they like most about Raleigh.

“There is always something to do or see. At Meredith, we get all the perks of living in a large college town but the feel of living in a small community while on campus,” –Abigail Lorentzen, ’16

“I love Raleigh. It’s a dynamic and busy place, but at the same time, not too large and overcrowded. Because of Research Triangle Park and major universities and businesses, many exciting things are going on around here. Meredith is located close to downtown Raleigh and very close to NC State, the NC Museum of Art, and many cafés and restaurants on Hillsborough Street.” — Alla Akiyeva, ’16

“Having easy access to all the restaurants and activities Raleigh has to offer. I also love that there is room to grow as a person meeting people everywhere, with all the different colleges in the Triangle.” —Nicole Benjamin, ’17

“The city size is perfect – there are enough places to check out on the weekends and it’s not too crowded.” – Melissa Jenkins, ’17

“Mainly the city life and how it’s far from home but not too far. There are so many things to do in Raleigh that I could never do back home, which makes going to school in here so much more interesting.”—Jessica Boyd, ’16

“You have so much you can do! And a lot of food choices on the weekends!” – Daniela Lopez, ’17

“Raleigh itself is like a giant college community. Not only can you get involved on campus but you can also get involved in Raleigh. There are plenty of places to go with your friends, plenty of places to eat, and several churches that the students can get networked into. The community provides ample opportunities for internships and Meredith is right in its heart.”—Rachel Anne Phelps, ’16

“There is just always something interesting to see, or do in Raleigh. If you want a big school feel, NC State is close by, and you’ve got downtown Raleigh, which has all kinds of neat activities, not to mention things like North Carolina Opera and North Carolina Symphony, which is appealing to a music major.” -- Sara Owens, ’15
