The beauty and condition of our campus create an impression of the College’s quality. The grounds and facilities of Meredith’s historic campus must support a range of activities and scholarship. They’re also designed to encourage friendship building, collaborative learning, and healthy development among our students.
We’re taking significant steps to make our campus as strong as possible. Improvements include the addition of the StrengthsLab in support of StrongPoints, upgrades to our campus wireless network, the addition of a campus-wide intranet, and new technology to support videoconferencing and distance education.
Through your support, the College will have the resources needed to keep our campus facilities and technology going strong.
Facilities and Technology Priorities
Meredith Lake is a picturesque place on campus that Meredith students, faculty, staff, alumnae, and visitors can enjoy throughout the year. In late March of 2017, the iconic campus lake drained due to the erosion of pipes and plumbing. We will soon begin the renovation of the Lake and surrounding area because of initial donations from our alumnae and generous gifts from alumnae and friends of the College. Visit meredith.edu/campus-growth in the coming months to see construction progress.
Complete the outdoor athletic complex, including building and maintaining the field and track, grandstands, hospitality areas, restrooms, and locker rooms.
Gifts from two generous donors allowed the College to make needed renovations in 2015-16 to Johnson Hall. Kresge Auditorium renovations were completed in January 2019 and Lowery Fitness Center was built in the Weatherspoon Physical Education Building in 2017 due to the generous gift from Ann Lowery, ’74. Other campus renovations are also needed and naming opportunities are available for current buildings and spaces.
To Become Even Stronger:
Like any asset, our campus and technology must be kept current and in good working order. Your gift will strengthen the student experience by supporting these and other key initiatives:
