Archives & College History
The College Archives is the home of historical materials about the College and its various constituencies. We recognize that some of the content in our digital collections may contain offensive materials and images. We have chosen to include them in the collection because we are committed to representing the institution’s history as accurately as possible. The behavior depicted in the images in direct violation of the current college policies and honor code and does not in any way reflect the current values of Meredith College.
