Meredith College | Going Strong

Meredith College has launched a multi-year branding campaign called Meredith College | Going Strong that will strengthen Meredith’s visibility and reputation as a high-quality academic institution.

The campaign launch began on campus August 12, and will continue to roll out through the academic year. The branding campaign, which provides a unifying overall message and design, communicates a promise that Meredith knows its strengths and the strengths of its students.

Meredith College | Going Strong conveys messages of

  • academic challenge,
  • individualization,
  • an environment where it’s safe to take risks – and learn from them,
  • a strong tradition of educating women, and
  • a passion for teaching all students to discover their strengths and grow stronger.

One example of messaging in keeping with the new brand campaign is this admissions recruitment statement: “At Meredith College, we believe every student has a wealth of natural resources. We're here to help you find your strengths and make them stronger. Our message is simply this: Wherever you're going in life, go with your strengths - go strong.”

Branding Campaign to Include Advertising in Variety of Strategic Venues
Another example of Going Strong is the brand video.

These messages will be applied in all areas of Meredith College communication, including fundraising and recruitment for undergraduate and graduate programs.

The branding campaign will include advertising in the Research Triangle area, including on broadcast television during local morning newscasts, in The News & Observer, The Triangle Business Journal, and on radio. New Meredith College Going Strong billboards in strategic locations and advertisements in regional magazines are also in the works.

Meredith is launching a fully redesigned website on August 28 to support the Going Strong brand. The new site is built using responsive design, which provides an optimal website experience across devices, including smartphones and tablets.

Other features visitors to new will experience include:

An increased emphasis on the strength and breadth of Meredith's academic programs

Consistent site-wide navigation and

A comprehensive campus events calendar

The branding campaign and redesigned website support the goals of the College’s Meredith Forever strategic plan.
