Meredith’s Summer Symposium is a two-day, overnight experience (which takes place in conjunction with the StartStrong events ). It is designed to promote self-awareness, appreciation of cultural differences, and foster a sense of community among incoming first-year students.
Our symposia provide an opportunity for students to reflect upon who they are and examine the lens they use to view people and understand the world around them. Additionally, this program provides participants with a framework to create new relationships while building a bridge from their respective communities and pre-collegiate experiences to Meredith College.
Participants can attend the symposium at no cost and will reside on campus in the residence halls. Meals will be provided, however, students will need to bring their own bedding and toiletries.
Previous topics covered during the Summer Symposium have included the following:
Tomecca Sloane, M.Ed.
Assistant Dean of Students
