Campus Culture

A vital residential community.

Carolina Meadows forms its own vibrant community in the heart of one of the Southeast’s most exciting regions. Designed with a belief that social interactions greatly increase the potential for wellness, our 170-acre campus environment greatly enriches residents’ lives by providing a host of opportunities for interaction with one another–and with the community beyond–for socializing and for building friendships that last a lifetime. The campus is drawn together by a resident-driven agenda and a commitment to excellence that everyone shares.


Our online community, Meadowlife, captures the soul of our community and connects residents with news, events and opportunities on and off campus.


Our community newsletter, Meadowlark, strives to keep residents informed by delivering the latest news, resident highlights and events and opportunities on campus and in the area.

This year’s edition of the Carolina Meadows literary publication will be introduced at the annual ‘Authors Reading.’ At the event, several authors will read their work. Your attendance is an opportunity to honor the more than two dozen residents whose poems, stories, and memoirs are included in this years’ VOICES.

In addition, we are privileged this year to include two poems by Shelby Stephenson, the North Carolina poet laureate.

Really good news is that, thanks to rearranged financing of teh publication by the Residents Association, the price of VOICES will be substantially lower than last year’s edition. Copies may be bought at the Authors Reading, in the Club Center Lobby for several evening thereafter, and in the Gift Shop. Your purchase may be charged to your CM account.
