Freshman class advisor promotes class unity
by Melissa Ray
As the advisor for the freshman
class, Dr. Louise Taylor is the woman
in charge of promoting togetherness
among the class of 1998.
As the head of the English depart

students and others call when they
have questions about grammar.
Much of Taylor’s time and energy
are devoted to helping her depart
ment and her students. Along with
teaching classes, grading papers, and
making schedules, Taylor works to set
up internships in English-related fields.
She advises students seeking degrees
in English on how their degrees can
lead to a career.
Since she was able to read, Taylor
has loved to read. She enjoys reading
plays, poems, novels and stories. Her
love for reading has gradually grown
to include a love for writing. As a
composition teacher, she enjoys help
ing others write more clearly.
Taylor was bom in Mount Vernon,
Ohio. She earned her undergraduate
degree at Swarthmore College, a
Quaker co-educational school near
Philadelphia, Pa. Taylor went on to

and the opportunity to work closely
by Chief Dan Shattuck
One Meredith faculty member probably thought Tuesday, Nov. 15 at
8:30 a.m. was just another busy day. Little did she realize that she had just
interrupted an intruder going through her bookbag.
The faculty member handled the situation appropriately by contact
ing another colleague immediately and by calling campus security. A
male, approximately 25 years old with no identification, was detained by
Meredith security personnel until the suspect eluded arrest and ran off
campus toward Wade Ave.
Meredith security officers and the Raleigh police pursued the sus
pect, and he was caught one block west of Brooks Ave. and two blocks
south of Wade Ave.
No charges were filed, and the suspect was given a trespass warning.
However, the suspect was determined to be on probation. Later, $38 was
reported missing from the area in which he was last seen. 'This individual
could not be properly charged with a crime without more information.
Tlie quick thinking and reporting of this incident by the faculty
assisted security with the likely prevention of further theft. The security
department reminds faculty, staff and students alike that timely, obser
vant reporting is critical to preventing and solving crime on campus.
with the faculty are among Meredith’s
greatest assets. “Former students and
faculty feel a sense of loyalty to the
college, creating a network that cares
and helps,” Taylor said.
When asked what advice she would
give Meredith students, she said “Take
charge ofyour life, plan, organize. Don’t
wait for someone else to do it for you. ”
As a student in college, Taylor
learned this truth the slow way. She
felt that she was preparing for life, but
that her life would not begin until she
In fact, her life had already begun.
She regrets not “ following up ” on some
of her ambitions while in school.
Taylor’s said her family is an impor
tant part of her life. Her husband is a
professor of mathematics at Campbell.
Together they are the parents of three
adult sons; Todd, Josh, and Nate.
This year is Taylor’s last year as
head of the English department.
She enjoys teaching at Meredith
and will continue teaching in the de
partment. She hopes to continue work
ing with internships and get better at it
as she goes along.
As a first time class advisor, Taylor
wants to cheer on the freshman class
in all of their activities. She said she is
excited about working with the fresh
men and helping to bring them closer
