How StrongPoints Works


Candice Webb and Students in the Lab


StrongPoints is a unique advising and personal coaching model based on leading educational research on how the most successful students make the most out of college.

First you'll identify your strengths using a research-based assessment tool. Then, throughout your four years at Meredith, you'll examine how those strengths can help you shape your academic goals, your experiential involvement, financial planning and career choice.

You'll do this important work with the guidance of faculty and staff advisers. Our individualized approach to education means that you'll work with not just one adviser, but several, all with different areas of expertise. And you'll graduate from Meredith knowing how to create an effective plan for the life you envision.

How to Sign Up for StrongPoints

StrongPoints is available to every Meredith student. There's no separate registration - or cost. It's an integral part of your Meredith experience - one that starts at orientation and continues throughout your college career.

StrengthsLab

Making the most of your strengths requires focused effort throughout your time at Meredith. That’s why we created StrengthsLab – a dedicated space on campus for all of our students to work on their strengths. It offers a variety of resources related to StrongPoints and strengths development. And because strengths work is both individual and collaborative in nature, StrengthsLab provides a place for students to come together for meetings and study sessions.
