Raleigh is a great place to live, work, and study.

Raleigh/Durham ranks as the #2 in Best Place to Live in the country according to U.S. News & World Report. As North Carolina’s state capital, it’s surrounded by young professionals, filled with job and internship opportunities, and packed with food, arts, and entertainment. It has also been named a Top Ten City where women are most successful.

There’s never been a better time to consider a smaller college. 

In a time when everyone is craving more personal connections and community, the benefits of attending a smaller college right now are worth considering. Class sizes are smaller, the connections are more meaningful, and the sense of community is unmatched.

Our numbers speak for themselves. In recent surveys, we’ve found that

  • 98% of our alumnae would recommend Meredith to others.
  • 98% saw important benefits in attending a women’s college.
  • 95% of our alumnae would choose Meredith if they could begin college again.
  • 97% of recent alumnae say they were professionally well prepared as a result of their Meredith experience.
  • 99% of alumnae rated the value of a Meredith College education as good, very good, or excellent.


Meredith is committed to providing financial support so all strong women have access to a life-changing education.

At Meredith, we believe a strong education should be accessible to all women. That’s why 95% of our students receive financial assistance –in fact, last year the average amount of financial assistance awarded to first-year students was $37,081.

It’s important to have options when it comes to choosing the right college fit, which starts with filling out applications. Take advantage of College Application Week and apply to Meredith today. You should also consider scheduling a visit if you haven’t already!
