            "Meredith College provides a rigorous and complete MAT program that enables individuals to finish in fifteen months. The education that I received from this program has allowed me to take my career to new levels of expertise and fulfillment."

            "Meredith College transformed my life in many ways. Although I considered attending a large university, I have always been thankful that I chose Meredith. I received two BS degrees and my MBA at Meredith and I can safely say that the education I received allows me to thrive shoulder to shoulder with co-workers from Stanford and Harvard every day in Silicon Valley. There are many schools that foster building strong relationships, acquiring knowledge and developing skills. However, Meredith also encourages women to find their voices and gain the confidence they will need to survive in the professional world."

            "Meredith College is so much more than a place to become well educated, although you will work harder and gain more knowledge than in most graduate programs! Meredith College is life and character changing, encouraging you to become all that you were intended to be - more than you could ever imagine. Although it is a private, smaller school, the professors aren't a hand-holding, coddling bunch, they teach you to figure it out yourself while gently guiding the path - inspiring you to set the bar higher, much higher than if you were setting it alone. You will make lifelong friends and have memories that last a lifetime. If you haven't visited the campus, I encourage you to. In 1990 I graduated with a BS in Foods and Nutrition, then going straight to UNC-Chapel Hill for a Masters in Public Health with a concentration in Nutrition. Meredith was the foundation from which I built my passion, career and lifestyle. Today, I own my own business, Race Smart, where I work with athletes and fitness enthusiasts from all over the world in multi-sport coaching and nutrition (lifestyle and sports) counseling. I love what I do, and Meredith helped me find my passion!"
