4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I absolutely love Raleigh. Even after being here for 3 years, I still have not been able to experience or participate in half the things I wanted to when I first moved here. There is always something going on that meets many peoples' wants and needs. If you are not a going out kind of person, Raleigh offers more than just bars. There are festivals and concerts all the time especially in the summer. You also are surrounded by many beautiful parks/greenways and awesome museums. If you're bored in Raleigh, then you're not doing something right!

Off-Campus Dining: since Meredith is so small, we only have two dining options: Belk Dining Hall and The Beehive. The only big complaints about our dining is the operating hours and lack of healthier options

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: While I loved how close on campus housing was the classes, the buildings were out of date. Many occasions we had problems with air conditioning or heat and our water. While the proximity to classes was great, my roommates and I were so grateful to get a new place after spending two years in the dorms.

Majors: At Meredith College once you are accepted to the college, you do not have to apply to be a part of a program. To declare your major, you simply have to go to your faculty advisor and have them sign a declaration of major sheet that you must take to the registrar. They advise that you wait until sophomore year to declare a major but you can do it at any time.

Majors: I love being a part of the Biology department. Being a education licensure student as well, I do not spend as much time in the Science building as regular Biology/Chemistry/Physics students. The teachers are very involved and helpful but also let you learn on your own. Some classes are difficult but they are built that way so that we have to work on our critical thinking skills instead of being given the answers by our professors.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: When I first came to Meredith, they had a huge selection of food choices during open house but that quickly changed. While the food is good, it is usually fried or unhealthy options with maybe a handful of healthy options, and it usually was salad or something that took no time at all. While I did enjoy all the desserts and fried food, it would have been better to see some more healthy options more than once a month. I no longer live on campus or use the dining hall, but have heard that they are trying to make it more accompanying to all girls at the college.

College Senior

Greek Life: At Meredith College we do not have Greek Life. We do have honor fraternities for some majors and we also take part in some traditions like Greeks such as Big and Little traditions and homecoming.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are some really good job and intern opportunities that my college offers. This year I am appointed the position of Resident Assistant, I am really looking forward to it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my professors. I can come to them about anything, whether it is school or personally related.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: While my school does not have its own means of helping students with off campus housing, Raleigh has many options available to students in the area. The pricing and availability are very widely ranged and allows for students to meet their necessary needs and also accommodate our wants as we'll such as hardwood floors, granite countertops, gyms, pools, club houses etc. in Raleigh you get what you pay for. my apartment complex is a townhouse type style housing with 3 and 4 bedrooms available. My landlords are highly involved in our day to day life and makes sure that we are always happy with our situation. Any problems we have encountered have been taken care if appropriately in a timely manner. I feel quite safe and our leasing agents send out alerts regularly it there suspicious behavior has been seen around our area. Parking is great at our complex since all parking is reseeded right in front of our house. Visitor parking is a little more difficult but we do have the option to obtain parking permits for our guests from the office if we tell them ahead of time

College Senior

Guys & Girls: Since meredith college is an all women's institution there is no way to express the make and female relationships

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: While Meredith is very lenient in efforts for student expression there are some topics they are very strict on. The two most strict topics would be male visitation hours and drinking. Men are not allowed to be on campus during the week except a specific time on Thursday evenings and are never allowed to spend the evenings. Drinking is strictly prohibited in the dorms but alcohol is allowed in the in campus apartments for students of legal drinking age. I have heard many situations where women have lost scholarships or been expelled from Meredith for frequent, insistent violations of our drinking policies

College Senior

Nightlife: Meredith college is a dry campus meaning no parties are ever put on at campus, it we are located very closely to North Carolina State University. The convenience of being located next to a large institution allows for Meredith students to enjoy a party scene life style while also being able to enjoy the feeling of coming home to a safe and quiet environment

4 College Junior

Nightlife: I'm not a nightlife kind of person; however, anyone that I know that enjoys that speaks greatly about all of the scenes around town. I do know that there are many options for nightlife in a large variety around the city.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safer on my college campus than most other places in the world! Campus crime is basically nonexistent and campus security is fabulous!

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining hall/campus dining is the college's largest weakness. The food is not bad, just not as great as all the other amenities the campus has to provide.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is absolutely beautiful! The facilities are old; however, that is what makes them so special. All the facilities provide the modern items any classroom may need.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics are good; however, not a very important part of campus.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is awesome! There are so many opportunities to get involved in my field through the college. My workload is difficult but manageable and the facilities and curriculum is great. I definitely feel confident in my field and well prepared to enter the work force and continue my education in the field if I so choose.

5 College Junior

Academics: Registration has never been easier! It is so simple and nearly impossible to not get into all the classes that you want The workload is challenging but well worth it! Professors are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: Meredith College is an all-women's college so there are no guys on campus. The girls styles typically range from really anything and everything. Some girls can be described as "Lilly Pulitzer" girls, while prefer a more earthy style. Each student usually adds her own personal flare to her style.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses are challenging, which prepares you for continuing education and future careers. The professors are extremely helpful and go out of their way to provide students with assistance. No student is just a number to our professors, we are so much more. They truly care about our well being and academic success. There is a large variety of majors and because of the small size, it is easy to register for all of the classes you need whenever you want to take them. The class size is very small and the style is very interactive.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Any business that knows of Meredith College understands the quality of the education offered there. The college goes out of their way to connect students to employers in the location they are seeking work in.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is awesome! There are places for every type of person to enjoy from extreme varieties in food and entertainment. The city provides countless resources for the citizens to enjoy.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I choose to live on-campus, but from what I have heard, off-campus housing is fantastic. It's super easy to find college apartments, houses, etc.
