On February 2, 2021, Institutional Advancement and the Parents & Families Council sponsored a Student Success Panel webinar for all Meredith parents and families. The presenters were Dean of Students Ann Gleason, Director of the Counseling Center Beth Meier, Director of Residence Life Heidi LeCount, Director of the Learning Center Tina Romanelli, Director of Academic Advising Alex Davis, and Director of Student Leadership & Service Cheryl Jenkins.
In the hour long presentation, the speakers provided information on the services their offices offer to students and tips for success in and out of the classroom during this challenging semester.
The families heard from each presenter, then had an opportunity to ask questions. Director of the Health Center Dr. Mary Johnson was also available for all medical and COVID-related questions.
Information that was presented included how and when to schedule appointments with the Learning Center, Academic Advising and the Counseling Center, how to stay connected with friends, and how to remain involved in Meredith activities all while following guidelines for social distancing, having virtual classes, etc.
Over 90 family members registered for the webinar which was the first of its type to be held at Meredith. The parents and families learned a lot to help their students be successful and strong during such a difficult time.
