Founded in 1842, Hollins University is a 4-year liberal arts university for women and the first all-female institution chartered in Virginia. Hollins confers undergraduate degrees in 28 fields of study and all undergraduate programs are open only to women while men are eligible to take Hollins classes 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. For recreation, the Hollins outdoor program sponsors hiking, mountain climbing, and skiing excursions. Once every year, Hollins cancels classes for the annual campus Tinker Day celebration and all students hike up nearby Tinker Mountain in costume for a picnic lunch and social gathering.
