Hollins University is a private institution founded in 1842 and was the first all-female college to be chartered in Virginia. Today, all the undergraduate programs remain female-only, but men can be admitted at the graduate level. Hollins was one of the first colleges in the US to create a study abroad program and now hosts them in many countries, including in London and Paris, and a service learning project in Lucea, Jamaica. A majority of undergraduates choose to study English, biology, or business.

What Students Are Saying

2.34 Average Rating
It's a very vibrant campus and community- so much so that people will be disappointed if you don't find an EC to occupy your time. The classes are small and professors are available to students for discussions and conversations.
Murryn from Gibsonville, NC
Hollins is a welcoming environment. The students are far from typical, and there is a niche for everyone here. Hollins has great resources for both academics and social life, as well as life after college.
