How a College Can Provide Support During Your College Journey

At this point in your college search process, you may have begun to receive acceptance letters from colleges and universities. As decision day draws near, we recommend a holistic approach when choosing which college to attend. Although academics are the main factor, it is also important to research what kind of support and services a college will offer you. In today’s blog, we review just some of the services that will be accessible to you as a Meredith student.

Clubs and Organizations

With over 100 clubs and organizations, Meredith offers an array of opportunities for you to build relationships, gain experience, and have an impact on your new community. You can join cultural, service, religious, professional, and performing arts organizations, as well as honor societies and student government. There truly is something for everyone!

Counseling Center

The Counseling Center provides evidence-based clinical services. You will be able to talk with a licensed psychotherapist in a safe, nonjudgmental environment about any challenge you face. They offer a variety of services, including individual counseling, crisis services, outreach and training, psychological consultations, resources, and referrals. All services are free and confidential.

At Meredith, we understand each student comes to college with a unique background and experiences. The Counseling Center is committed to supporting and celebrating students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, relationship orientation, religion, class, ability level, body type/size, genetic information, age, political viewpoint, and any other salient or intersecting personal and cultural identities.
