16 Reasons to Choose Hollins


Individual Winners

In addition to supporting your class to capture first place in the Race to Reunion, the Office of Admission offered these individual prizes as well:

  • The Reunion class member who provides the most individual referrals will receive a complimentary weekend stay in Barbee Guest House (dates subject to availability).
  • For non-Reunion class years, the alumna who provides the most referrals in support of the Race to Reunion will receive a $50 voucher to the Hollins bookstore.


Why are Alumnae Referrals Important?

Many of our best students are those referred to us by alumnae, and we encourage you to continue to strengthen the Hollins sisterhood. Watch this video to hear from current students how they heard about Hollins from alumnae.


Up to $1,000 for your referred student

If you make your referral before your prospect is admitted to Hollins, she will receive a $500 scholarship. She can earn an additional $500 scholarship when she enrolls by visiting the Hollins campus through the Office of Admission.




Rules of the Race to Reunion:

  • Each prospective student is only counted once - no double referrals.
  • We count referrals received from September 1, 2013, through May 30, 2014 ( the Office of Admission has included those referrals submitted since September 1st who were not included in the push for seniors associated with the Rally for Hollins.)

Race to Reunion: The Finish Line

Your referrals of talented students have a direct impact on both the quality and quantity of the next class of Hollins women. Indeed, of the students who will enroll in the class of 2018, 11% were referred by alumnae!  Please continue to refer students for the Classes of 2019, 2020 and beyond.  We truly appreciate your support!


Thank you, Alumnae: Race to Reunion

After exceeding the goal by nearly double in last fall's Rally for Hollins referral campaign, alumnae proved that you know how to share Hollins with friends, family, and community members as they began their college search. As this new year brought a new season of recruiting the class of 2018 and beyond, the Office of Admission asked for your continued support in the #RacetoReunion.

The finish line was May 30, 2014. The Reunion class year that referred the most students is:

  • The Class of 1959 with 9 referrals

Thank you to all of you who refer students to us!
