Why Hollins

We’re glad you asked…

You get the women’s college advantage.

Just ask our graduates. They enjoy a global alumnae network that opens doors to internships, careers, and connections that last a lifetime.

You get unparalleled leadership training.

Students also find more confidence to lead both in and out of the classroom. Through our Batten Leadership Institute, you identify and hone those leadership skills. In fact, you’ll learn more in three years than most people learn in a lifetime.

You get to put theory into practice.

Two-thirds of our students complete an internship. The Career Center places students in positions that highlight their specialties, both in the United States and abroad.

You get to study abroad.

More than 40% of our students have an international learning experience. That’s because Hollins offers generous aid to help students afford their study abroad opportunities. We offer our own programs in Paris and London, as well as program affiliations in 14 other locations.

You get to write. A lot.

Our creative writing programs produce amazing writers, four of whom are Pulitzer Prize winners. Our nationally renowned faculty are published poets, novelists, essayists, and scholars.

Still unsure?

You don’t even have to take our word for it.
