Afternoon Sessions
Alumnae are invited to choose from the following two sessions:

Women and Politics after the 2016 Election
David McLennan, professor, Department of Political Science; Director of the Meredith Poll

Historically women have been underrepresented in political offices in North Carolina and across the nation. The 2016 elections and their aftermath have created enthusiasm among many women to get engaged in the political process from protesting to running for office in greater numbers. This presentation explores this heightened enthusiasm and offers predictions for how women will influence the elections of 2018 and beyond.

Meredith Traditions and Tales
Dr. Jean Jackson, ’75, Vice President for College Programs; Professor of English

Whether you were a Phi or Astro, an Odd or Even, Meredith traditions likely make up some of your fondest memories as a student. This session will highlight the College’s rich traditions – their origins and more recent evolutions. Bring some memories to share!

2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Campus Tours

Alumnae volunteers will be available to lead you on a campus tour.
