Today we are proud to announce the launching of our brand new Meredith College Alumnae blog, Beyond the Back Gate. It is our hope that this blog will make you think, laugh, and maybe even cry. We hope that through stories, photos, and articles you will feel a renewed connection to our beloved Alma Mater.
Everyone knows that there is something special about a Meredith Alumna. Similarly, Meredith Alumnae know that there is something special about our Meredith College. The honest truth is that Meredith is so incredible and so remarkable that it has become a part of who we are; it is ingrained in us and has helped shape us into the women we are today.
The 2010 Commencement speaker, Gretchen Holt Witt ’89, put it best when she said, “While you’re at Meredith, it’s not just the mind that is learning, it is the soul that is also growing. What I didn’t realize at the time was just how much Meredith was a part of me. But now I know that although I left Meredith many years ago, it has never left me.”
So please, sit back, relax, enjoy and don’t forget to come back and check up on us. We hope that you’ll join us as we show you what’s going on Beyond the Back Gate of Meredith College. We are so grateful for your support, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Fantastic idea! Way to jump on the technology wagon! I too am following my very first blog with “Beyond the Back Gate.” Thanks!! Christine (McDaid) Rejdovjan, ’90
Meredith College is one of my life’s happiest memories. May she continue to be a place of growth for young women for decades to come.
Love the new blog and looking forward to reading many memories.
This is a great idea!
Delighted to see this blog initiated. Actually, it’s the first one I’ve ever been inspired to join! Thanks so much.

This is a really great idea. I can’t wait to see the posts and pictures! The “Where in the World?” section makes me want to plan a trip too.
Great idea and nice to enter this technological arena to reach across class years!
