More than one hundred years ago, Meredith College opened with just over 200 women. Today, we’re nationally ranked and our student body has grown to include nearly 2,000 students, including men who are part of our graduate programs. All learn to enhance their strengths, broaden their perspectives, and prepare for lives of impact and distinction. All going strong.
