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 CliftonStrengths®, a proven 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 advisors. Our individualized approach to education means that you’ll work with not just one advisor, 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.

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.
