Meredith to Host Free Graduate School Planning Workshop on March 28

By Hannah Flood, ’20 | Published Tue, February 18, 2020

On Saturday, March 28, 2020, Meredith College will host its annual Graduate Program Workshop.

Meredith College President Jo Allen will open the workshop to help attendees discern whether graduate school is the right decision for them.

For those who are thinking about pursuing an advanced degree, questions often arise. Meredith’s Graduate Program Workshop is structured to address some of those common questions and concerns regarding the graduate school application process, entrance exams, and options for financial assistance.

Professionals in the field will discuss various parts of applications as well as how prospective graduate students can present themselves on paper to stand out from the crowd. Overviews of common graduate school entrance exams such as the GMAT, GRE, and MAT will be provided. Types of financial assistance that may be available to graduate school applicants will also be addressed. 

There will be a closing session with motivational speakers from the Institute for Emerging Issues, Greg Hedgepeth and Darryl Lester. They will speak on "Knowing Your Why" to guide prospective students into making their next steps.

At the end of the workshop, informational sessions about Meredith’s own graduate and post-baccalaureate certificate programs will be given for those interested in learning more. Graduate school students, faculty, and staff will lend their firsthand knowledge and experience to attendees and discuss how Meredith’s graduate degrees and certification programs can help them achieve their career goals. 

The workshop runs from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. with check-in beginning at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast will be provided to attendees at the time of check in, as well as lunch as part of the event. 

Those interested in attending the free workshop are invited to register online at
