I enjoy Meredith College a lot. There is a rich history, and the faculty and staff care about their students. It’s a smaller campus, and an all-girls school, but neither bothered me. It was nice to have my professors know who I am, and even what is going on in my life. The only downside of Meredith is that it has a heavy tuition, from $35,000 to $40,000.
