Alumnae Recruitment of Meredith Students (ARMS) 2019-20 Opportunities

Greetings from the Office of Admissions!

The Class of 2023 has arrived and classes are in full swing! Our admissions counselors have begun planning their travel for the fall recruitment season and will be hitting the road traveling to various college fairs and high schools in-state and out-of-state. Aerial view of Johnson Hall

As an ARMS volunteer, you have the opportunity to participate in strategic outreach to high school seniors in the fall, high school juniors in the winter, and admitted students in the spring. Our fall outreach emailing week will take place in October/November and will focus on reaching out to prospective high school seniors encouraging them to apply to Meredith and visit campus for an individual visit or Think Meredith Open House. If you haven’t been involved with the emailing outreach weeks in previous years and would like to be involved this year, please email Anna Lambert at Alumnae are able to share their stories of success and college experiences during these outreach weeks in order to inspire students to apply to Meredith, so your message to these young women is valuable!

Mark your calendars for the Discover Meredith event on Saturday, October 19!  ARMS volunteers can take part in this annual event where alumnae bring prospective students to campus to hear from Dr. Allen and other alumnae and students, participate in a “traditions tour” of campus, and enjoy a delicious lunch in Belk Dining Hall. Registration for this event can be found online here –

Another way to support recruitment efforts is referring students to Meredith. Alumnae can complete the “Refer a Student” form if they would like to connect a prospective student with Meredith. This referral would merit an application fee waiver if the student applies!  Our application for students to apply is available here –

The Office of Admissions values the potential impact of alumnae building and shaping the next strong class at Meredith. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about ARMS, please contact Anna Lambert, ‘09, Assistant Director of Admissions and Regional Recruiter for Mid-Atlantic States, at

I look forward to working with each of you this year!
