Experience Meredith’s History on the Meredith Moments Blog

The approach of the 125th anniversary of the College’s founding is the ideal time to brush up on your Meredith history. The Meredith Moments Blog – curated by Technical Services Assistant Meredith Haynes and Associate Professor of History Dan Fountain – features a post a day from each year of the College’s history.

On the blog, you’ll learn about everything from the past presidents of the College, to the origin of Crook Hunt, to how women on campus supported the fight for women’s suffrage.

As the blog moves into more modern times, you’ll learn about notable speakers that have visited campus, how the students reacted to world events including the Vietnam War and September 11, and how the College has evolved since its founding.

The posts will continue until the 125th anniversary celebration on February 27, 2016, and will be shared daily on Meredith’s Instagram and Facebook accounts. Be sure to follow along.
