Welcome, Class of 2020!

Do you remember when you first arrived to campus as a freshman at Meredith? Perhaps you fondly recall driving under the balloon arch to those welcoming cheers. Members of the Class of 2020 will arrive on Saturday, August 20, and we invite you to join us in welcoming these new students and their families to Meredith. This is your opportunity to relive one of your treasured Meredith memories but without the unpacking!

Alumnae are invited to participate in the following move in day activities:

8 – 10 a.m. or 10 a.m. – Noon: Front Lawn Greeters
Families will be stationed in the front lawn area adjacent to the soccer field and will be directed by Campus Police to their assigned residence hall in increments. During this time, we invite alumnae to greet and welcome families, answer questions, and help distribute water.

8:30 – 10 a.m. or 10 a.m. – Noon: Door to Door Hall Greeters
Incoming students will be provided with gifts from the Alumnae Association. Alumnae will visit students and families in their room to drop off these gifts, answer questions and welcome them to Meredith.

1 p.m. – 3 p.m.: Commuter Greeters
Commuter students will arrive and check in on campus at the Cate Center. Alumnae volunteers will greet students and their families as well as provide them with a gift from the Alumnae Association.

We hope you will join the Alumnae Association in offering a warm, Meredith welcome to the Class of 2020! Register here to join us.

When registering, you will also have an option to purchase a move in day T-shirt for alumnae volunteers to wear throughout the day.

Should you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Office of Alumnae Relations at (919) 760-8548 or We look forward to seeing you back on campus!
