    Meredith College held commencement exercises for the Class of 2015 on Saturday, May 9, 2015, in Dorton Arena.

    The evening was filled with remembrances of successful years at Meredith College. This year’s commencement speaker was Meredith President Jo Allen, the first alumna to serve as Meredith’s president. Allen began her tenure as president in July 2011, just before the Class of 2015 moved in as freshmen. This special relationship with the class prompted their officers to invite Allen to serve as their commencement speaker.

    The title of Allen’s speech, How Did It Get So Late So Soon?, was inspired by how quickly the years had passed. Allen recalled important events that took place during those four years, both at Meredith and in the world. She also emphasized the kinship she feels with the Class of 2015 and all who attended Meredith.

    Approximately 440 degrees were conferred by Meredith College during the ceremony. Meredith conferred Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, and Bachelor of Social Work degrees upon graduates of the undergraduate program, as well as master’s degrees in business, education, and nutrition. These include degrees completed in August 2014, December 2014, and May 2015. Undergraduate programs at Meredith are for women only, while graduate programs are coeducational.

    Meredith 2015 graduates have been hired by companies including Credit Suisse, Biogen, Nordstrom, Merck, IBM, Capitol City Homes, BDO USA, Carolina Retina Clinic, Wake County Public Schools, Walt Disney World, and King’s College London. Others will pursue graduate degrees at universities including UNC-Chapel Hill, NC State University, Duke, Emory, George Mason, University of California at Berkeley, East Carolina University, and Campbell Law School.
