There are many ways to get involved in the Alumnae Association, and we encourage your participation in the following events and programs:
Alumnae Reunion Weekend
All alumnae are invited to attend Alumnae Reunion Weekend. However, classes celebrate special class reunion on a five-year cycle. For example, all classes ending in an 8 or 3 will be celebrating a special class reunion in May of 2023. Alumnae Reunion Weekend invites alumnae to reminisce with friends and relive their Meredith days. Over the course of a weekend, alumnae are invited to a special class party, the Annual Meeting of the Alumnae Association, individual class events and an Alumnae Worship Service. Alumnae also have the option to stay on campus in the Residence Halls.
Chapters allow alumnae to gather within specific geographical areas and typically meet two times per year. We have more than 30 alumnae chapters, so there may be one in your area. If there is not an active chapter in your area and you would be interested in starting one, please contact the Alumnae Office.
Career and Networking Opportunities
The Networking Angels group offers regular opportunities to network in a social setting. Each event strives to highlight alumnae-owned business, success stories, and offer tips for job seekers. The purpose of the group is to support fellow alumnae professionally.
Alumnae are encouraged to use the resources in Academic & Career Planning as you job search or seek career changes. In addition to individual appointments, alumnae may take advantage of job fairs, job postings, resume and interview advice. You can also become a member of the LinkedIn group managed by Academic and Career Planning. This resource will link you to other Meredith Angels.
Alumnae Business Directory
Are you a Meredith alumna who owns a business? The Office of Alumnae Relations is seeking to provide the Meredith community with a list of STRONG alumnae business owners from all over the country in a wide variety of industries. We hope this resource will encourage networking and provide support for alumnae-owned businesses.
Angel Adventures, the Meredith College Alumnae Travel program, allows alumnae and friends to travel along with the Meredith community. MC in NYC is an annual trip to New York City each November. International trips have included: Sansepolcro, Italy, Paris, France, London, England and a Scandinavian cruise. Typically, the College offers one domestic and two international trips per academic year in addition to the weekend in NYC.
