2020 Meredith College Commencement Postponed

Because of COVID-19 concerns, Meredith’s Commencement will not take place in May as planned. We have made the difficult decision to postpone – not cancel – our Commencement exercises.

We will be working with members of our community to gather ideas for the ceremony. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2020 and all of your achievements!

Commencement exercises for the Class of 2020 will be held on Saturday, May 9, at 8 p.m. in Reynolds Coliseum on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Guests are invited to attend all commencement events to help celebrate this milestone with graduates.
