  • As a Meredith College scholar in the GlaxoSmithKline Women in Science program, Destiny McDuffie, ’16, gained valuable research and professional experience
  • When Miranda Gilfillan, ’16, came to Meredith College as a freshman transfer student, she had no idea what she wanted to study. After one math class, her path became clear
  • Ashley Souza, ’16, is a biology major with minors in food and nutrition and chemistry, a distinguished member of four honor societies, and is pursuing a career as an international zoo veterinarian

Many students in the School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences collaborate directly with faculty to build partnerships that support original research and creative endeavors.

The Undergraduate Research Program at Meredith offers direction and support for students who are ready to be original, to push at the boundaries of the classroom and the textbook, and to connect with others who share their interests. Learn more »
