Preview is a program designed specifically for students with disabilities who will be attending Meredith for the first time or who are unfamiliar with the resources available through Disability Services. The goal of Preview is to offer students a chance to move in early and get a jump on the transition to college through special programs, activities, and introduction to Preview Mentors. Mentors are returning students who have had a variety of experiences using Disability Services. The mentorship program has proven to be an integral part in assisting new students using Disability Services with the transition to college. Most past participants report feeling better prepared for success in college after their Preview experience.
