New Student Orientation is a multi-day event, which leads up to the start of classes, that welcomes new students to Meredith College and offers them the opportunity to settle in and and become familiar with campus.
We are looking forward to having new students join us during New Student Orientation! Orientation will help you become more acquainted with campus and introduce you to many faculty, staff and other students. Please review the following important details about attending the program. If you have any questions about Orientation activities, please email Jennifer Bell, co-Director of First Year Experience, with any questions.
