"Meredith College's M.B.A. is an on campus only program-no hybrid options at this time. The cost of the program was comparable to some of the larger institutes in the area and it has AACSB accreditation. I picked Meredith because of the small class sizes and the option for a concentration in Human Resources Management. All of the courses are at night usually from 6-9pm. The professors were approachable and eager to help . This is a great program for someone looking to expand their career and earning potential but would enjoy the smaller program atmosphere. To succeed in the program, you need to be willing to put in the time and effort, prepare for classes, complete coursework early, and be willing to ask when you don't understand something. There is a lot of group work which I found incredibly helpful to hear different perspectives. When I started, the adviser knew which classes to pair together for optimal learning experiences."

"Small class sizes with an evening MBA program for students that are also working full time. Meredith is a good choice for the cost, class selection and flexibility."

"Meredith College is a diverse university, and it welcomes students from all backgrounds. Once you step foot on campus your freshman year, you belong to a sisterhood that supports you and encourages you to strive for success. Meredith College bonds it students together through many traditions over the four years you spend there: Cornhuskin', Ring Dinner, Class Day, along with many others. During my time at Meredith, I was able to create strong friendships that I know will last years into the future. Another great attribute of the college is the faculty. The professors at this institution genuinely care about their students' successes, and they help and encourage students to pursue internships and other career-building experiences during their education. The general education program at the school is a bit extensive, but students will graduate with a broad education, which is an asset when entering the workforce or continuing your education. Meredith also provides ample opportunities for students to get involved in leadership roles, service projects, and clubs on campus. Overall, this school will provide you with a great education, and it will prepare you for a successful journey, wherever you may go after graduation."

"The BSW program at Meredith College is awesome! I loved how small the classes are and how well you get to know your classmates. Your professors really care about you and your future so they try to do everything they can to help you succeed. As long as you give it your best effort, you will receive all the support from them! You get to be really close to your classmates and they become your sisters after taking all the prep for field classes!"

"Meredith College teaches you how to become an independent strong willed woman who can think for herself and be assertive. The education system at Meredith is a solid one I believe there should be more opportunities for internships and field learning."

  • Degree: Paralegal
"This program was very educational and hands on. I believe this program will help me transition into a paralegal program and has prepared me for success. This program is offered at night and enables you to keep working while attending this two semester certificate program. This programs is also American Bar approved which gives it more stigma."

"When I first began school in 2012, my father had just passed away. Before I even stepped foot on campus, I had counselors and other faculty sending emails and calling me, showing that they were aware of my situation and what resources they had to help. I fell in love with this school during a college tour during my senior year. The staff is amazing, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 16 to 1. This is very helpful even if you do not feel you need an intimate class size, because your teachers will come to know you as an individual. I would definitely recommend applying for as many scholarships as possible and maintaining a GPA of at least a 2.5, because private schools are costly. Be open with your professors about anything that is stressing you out, they are very understanding. DO NOT hesitate to ask questions and always be aware that you are responsible for your success! Sometimes people go to schools that they hear good things about, expecting everything to be laid out on a silver platter. Be proactive! It will make your experience much more enjoyable."

"Rigorous and challenging academia; but campus needs to be updated and technology needs to be further utilized."

"I think the biggest PROs for Meredith College's Science and Nutrition Program are that it is located on a small college campus with an ideal student:faculty ratio. You definitely feel as though you know your professors on a first name basis and classes never exceed 25-30 students, typically around 15-20 though so you feel like you also get to know the other students well, too. Having these bonds with faculty and students definitely makes the stress of working while going to grad school not seem so bad. Classes are also offered in the afternoons starting at around 4 so it is designed so that you can work around both a job and school. The only CON I can think of is the cost, seeing as it is a Private Institution. But the program is one of the best and also well known in the State so it ends up being kind of worth it."

"I wish that I had attended Meredith for undergrad. It is the type of school that makes you love college. All the teachers are so helpful not only in academics, but at personal issues also. The campus is simply beautiful and offers to many opportunities to interact with students and enjoy being a college student."
