I have been to Meredith College for aBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I have been to Meredith College for a year and its slowly going down the drain. The buildings are old and they are not bringing in enough money to keep it updated. Some of the professors are great, but a lot of them want to be praised for doing the bare minimum. Socially the school is okay if your upper or upper middle class, but if you are a minority (not just race) you will have trouble here. The atmosphere of this school is education, but a lot of their programs are for those going to graduate school not getting into the workforce. There is a severe lack of diversity in this school from the students and professors.

Question
This college just spent 3.Not so bright
This college just spent 3.5 MILLION dollars to build a new welcome center. This is sickening. The dorms and classrooms are literally falling apart. If you ever take the tour, they only show you the dorm that they've spruced up and don't allow students to live in.

Want the reality of the situation? You go to this college to and pay $40,000+ a year for broken down housing and small run-down classrooms.

Also, Meredith ISN'T safe. There are men on campus who have been chasing girls around at night. Campus security told these girls to keep quiet about the situation (I am on of the girls) as to not scare anyone. So, we have men chasing girls around and we aren't allowed to warn them.In all honestly, screw this CULT. The girls here are stuck up and sooo privileged. I came to Meredith because it was my dream school. I wanted to become stronger and grow here. But I haven't. Meredith is one big lie. The students and faculty will literally do and say anything they can to rope in vulnerable high school students. And once you're here? They don't care about you. I told my financial aid counselor that I was going to transfer and she literally began fighting with me because she's a Meredith alumn. Meredith is literally a cult and once you're here, you're in debt and will want to leave. I gave up 2 full rides to other colleges to go to this piece of crap school. It's one large mirage. It looks gorgeous and wonderful while you're a little curious high schooler. But once you're actually here??? It's worn down, outdated, STRICT, EXPENSIVE (they make you pay for a lot of stuff out of pocket while you're here. Corn huskin' is fun, but I had to pay $60 to even participate.), and just not worth the cost. Meredith will NEVER be worth the cost. Go to a public school. They're less expensive, more updated, and are diverse and teach you about the real world instead of sheltering you like Meredith does.

Question
Meredith college is a wonderful school.Quite BrightBiology
Meredith college is a wonderful school. I have enjoyed my time here because of some of the faculty members. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find your niche if you're not a southern girl from a small town. Honestly if you're thinking of coming to Meredith please come with an open mind. Treat others how you want to be treated and respect one another. I shouldn't have to write this for a college review. I'm not going to list my negative experiences but I will try to give advice on how to make Meredith college the best college it Has the potential to be.
