This edition of Fast Facts Friday is brought to you by Cinthia Arreola, ’21, Spanish translation intern in the Provost and VP for Marketing offices. Read her letter below to learn about one of Meredith’s newest initiatives!
To assist the growing number of Hispanic and Latina identifying students and their families, Meredith has taken the initiative to create “Meredith En Espanol”, which provides important website content in Spanish. I have had the great opportunity to work alongside marketing and enrollment staff and my Spanish professors this year to expand the Spanish-language site and to translate other online resources.
We want families of prospective and current native Spanish-speaking students to feel welcomed and to benefit from all of the resources Meredith has to offer. For this reason, we have translated information including scholarship opportunities, undergraduate admissions criteria, select videos, and blog posts in Spanish. Meredith’s virtual tour is also now available in Spanish.
We hope this information will reach many prospective students and be beneficial as they make decisions to attend Meredith College. In order to do this, we encourage you to share this information with family and friends so we can have a stronger impact together.
“Meredith En Español” can be found on the header and footer of the Meredith website under “Information For,” or accessed directly via the following link: https://www.meredith.edu/en-espanol
The Spanish version of the virtual tour is available at: https://www.meredith.edu/virtual-tour/recorrido-virtual
Other translated resources can also be accessed throughout the website.
Let’s work together as an institution to make this information available to speakers of the second-most-spoken language in the country!

WONDERFUL!!!! I don’t know how to say that in Spanish. So proud of Meredith!!!!!!!
Please consider that website marketing approach for young women of the same race (human) and all ethnicities….black, Asian, Caucasian, etc. The personalization of faces and individual stories is powerful.
I am a charter member (6 years) of a Racial Reconciliation Group in Edenton, NC. We need to encourage all capable young women to educate themselves and to be independent.
