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 166-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.

‘China’s Social Credit System’

China’s Social Credit System seems dystopian to us, and it is–there are literal dystopian sci-fi stories that have this as its premise. But is it that bad?
