Parents Day to Be Held September 26, 2015

The inaugural Meredith College Parents Day will occur on Saturday, September 26, 2015. The programming for the day is geared towards parents of current students and will cover a variety of meaningful topics during the afternoon sessions. 

Parents are invited to begin their day at Meredith by attending an Avenging Angels soccer game at 1 p.m., followed by the Parents Day program at 4 p.m. with remarks from President Jo Allen, ’80, and other speakers. Parents will have the opportunity to attend engaging breakout sessions across campus, including a study abroad showcase, campus garden tour, and Cornhuskin’ history lesson. All presentations will be interactive and will allow parents to immerse themselves in the Meredith culture. 

Parents Day will conclude with a picnic dinner beginning at 6 p.m. with daughters, deans, and department heads in the Belk Dining Hall courtyard. Parents and students will have the chance to mingle with other families while enjoying a performance by Encore! and hearing from other members of the Meredith community.
