Insights from Students and Alumnae

During your college search, it is important to receive insight into the college from current students and alumnae. It’s a great way to get a sense of how the college helps students succeed during and after college. 

We’ve gathered some of that data for you in recent surveys where we asked our students and alumnae about their experiences at Meredith. We found that 

  • 95% of our students receive financial assistance. All first-year students who meet Meredith’s admission requirements will receive a minimum $20,000 annual scholarship.
  • 96% of alumnae say they were professionally well prepared as a result of their Meredith experience. 
  • 95% of students said faculty/staff members have shown interest in their development
  • 97% of students participate in an applied learning experience such as study abroad, undergraduate research, or internships.
  • 96% of our alumnae would recommend Meredith to others. 
  • 98% of alumnae saw benefits in attending a women’s college. 
  • 98% of alumnae rated the value of a Meredith College education as good, very good, or excellent.
