“It is so convenient to be close to everything! Living on campus has allowed me to become much more independent and to form intimate relationships with my classmates. My family is within commuting distance, but I know that I would not get the fullness of the experience that I have had at Meredith if I lived at home.”

“I enjoy living within a walking distance to all of my classes and the safe atmosphere it entails. Living on campus has made my experience the best because it allows me to be active in so many ways. I am always surrounded by friends and feel like I always know what’s going on around campus.”

Colbie Normann Stephens, ’20
Junior - lived on campus three years
“I have lived on campus all four years. It helps a lot as an athlete. We have late nights when we come home at 1 or 2 in the morning. Luckily for me my "commute” home is really short and quick. I think living on campus has also given me an opportunity to get to know my class, as well as the younger classes, through the face-to-face interaction. It has allowed me to fall in love with the school more, especially walking back to the Oaks after Cornhuskin’. That's always fun because we all end up going back around the same time and it's like extra bonding.”
