And, of course, our beautiful campus.
With classic brick buildings situated on 225 acres of lush, park-like grounds, every corner you turn at Meredith offers a new Insta-worthy spot. In this post, we highlight seven of the most popular Instagram locations on our campus. Whether you’re a high school student visiting for the first time or an alum checking out your favorite haunts, we’re sure you’ll find a spot to fit your feed.
Our most iconic building has been the beautiful backdrop for many an Insta post. Some like to feature it in the background, others head inside to the rotunda to make use of the sweeping staircase and soaring balconies, and still others highlight the balcony that graces the front of Johnson (Cornhuskin’ anyone?).
Just in front of Johnson Hall you’ll find the Elizabeth Triplett Beam Fountain Plaza. The circular brick fountain featuring the beloved College seal (known as the Lux) is the perfect spot for individual and group shots, especially at Commencement time. (Yes, the “steps” in the fountain were made from the original marble steps that led up to the entrance of Johnson Hall, but please resist the understandable urge to climb on them – they can be slippery!)
The Meredith Lake is a scenic space for students to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors. The recently renovated lake features plenty of charming spots to take photos with your friends and family, including some bridges, a gazebo, and an island with a beautiful bronze sculpture of a girl dancing with birds.
The lobby of the newly completed Communication and Health, Exercise & Sports Science academic building has a water wall with the Lux and a fire feature that pays tribute to the fire and water ceremony first-year students attend each year. Not only is it a beautiful spot, but the lighting is great for photos too.
Located in the center of one of Meredith’s main courtyards, the Heck Fountain is named for Fannie E.S. Heck, a social activist and writer who was a benefactor of Meredith. Surrounded by historic brick buildings, expansive lawns, and large, picturesque trees, you’ll have lots of room to get just the right angle for your post.
Although many of the photos taken in front of Jones Chapel feature brides who were married here, the white columns and classic architecture offer a graceful setting for Insta pics.
With its geometric lines and glass-topped atrium, the Science and Mathematics Building (affectionately known as SMB) offers plenty of natural light and interesting angles for your photos. The back courtyard provides additional opportunities, with fountains, lush plantings, and shaded benches. Strategic lighting makes this a great photo spot at night, too.
These are just some ideas to get you started. Your next step? Pay us a visit. While you’re here, find your own favorite spot and share it on Insta! Tag your photos with #MCGoingStrong and #MeredithCollege to be shared on our website on the Admissions page.
