Open House to be presented to trustees
by Erica L Balmer
SGA Vice President/ Senate Chair
Following the 1993 student referen
dum concerning Open House, the
current Open House policy was
presented as a recommendation
before the Meredith College Board
of Trustees in February of 1994 by
the SGA Senate and Residence Hall
Board. The approval of this recom
mendation by the trustees was a
inajor step in providing Meredith
students with not only an increased
visitation policy, but more opportu
nities for social activities on
Male visitation, however, is not a
suppressed issue for the Meredith
student population and its student
representatives. Some students
have expressed a desire for an
extended visitation policy. While
this issue affects primarily resident
students, comments and sugges
tions from all campus groups are
needed in order to accurately
evaluate the current male visitation
policy. Efforts are currently being
made to analyze the possibility of
drafting an extended visitation
The 1994-95 Senate conduaed an
extensive research campaign of
other college visitation policies. The
comparison study of various Baptist
colleges and universities, women’s
colleges, and other North Carolina
educational institutions included
schools such as Campbell University,
Wake Forest University, Salem
College, Mary Baldwin College,
Hollins, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NCSU,
just to name a few. The 1995-96
Senate will be continuing this
research throughout the fall semes
ter. This research information
provides an interesting prospective
on how Meredith’s visitation policies
compare with those of other col
leges and universities.
Additionally, this year’s Senate will
be cooperating with the Residence
Hall Board to evaluate student use of
Open House hours during the fall

I strongly encourage you to utilize
these Open House opportunities.
Student support of Open House is
extremely important to the devel
opment of Meredith’s social
environment. An extended male
visitation recommendation will
require evidence of student use of
current open House hours. The
statistics concerning the number of
visitors during each Open House
will serve as a major focal point in
the consideration of extended
More importantly, an accurate
survey of student opinions must be
made to determine the percentage
of the Meredith student body
desiring an increase in male
visitation. Although a survey
addressing Open House and male
visitation was distributed during
the 1995 spring semester, an
additional poll of the student body
will be made to acquire specific
percentages of those students
supporting or opposing extended
visitation. A student referendum will
tentatively be held Wednesday,
November 15 to poll student
opinions. The referendum will
include both resident and commuter
participation. All opinions will be
heard and addressed throughout this
process. Student input is the most
valuable resource. The data and
information compiled from the
comparison study. Open House
statistics, and the student referen
dum will be presented to the
Meredith College Board of Trustees
during the spring semester by Senate
and RHB. An extension of the
current visitation policies will be
recommended at this time if so
desired by the student body.
