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.

Best selling author Niall Ferguson’s latest book has been described as a brilliant recasting of the turning points in history, including the one we’re living through, as a collision between old power hierarchies and new social networks. He shows how network theory concepts such as clustering, degrees of separation, weak ties, contagions and phase transitions, can transform our understanding of both the past and the present. He also offers a prediction about which hierarchies will withstand this latest wave of network disruption and which will be toppled.
