Fall Film Contest 2017: Winner Hayley Harrington, Hollins Abroad-Paris

“My term on Hollins Abroad-Paris was an experience I would not trade for any other. The faculty members were great, the classes all very interesting, and I could not have had a better experience with my French hosts. The program far exceeded my expectations.”

“I’m so glad I chose the Hollins program because I know it gave me the best experience possible. The program met all of my expectations and I felt it was exactly as it had been described to me. I was very blessed with the information and assistance I received from the Hollins office in the States. They always responded to me in a timely manner and were very helpful with all my questions. I was also very pleased with the assistance from the Paris office. I was very happy with the range of courses that were offered to me and was able to take classes that count towards my major. This program is very friendly towards Art History majors! I was so happy with my experience and wouldn’t change anything!”

Other Opportunities

January Term

During each January Short Term, Hollins students can choose from an array of abroad experiences. Every year students can go to the Institut de Touraine in France’s Loire Valley for intensive study of French language or to Seville for intensive study of Spanish language. In addition, Hollins faculty members conduct different travel/study courses for each Short Term.



“We did research even before we got to St. John. I liked the balance between having a really fun group and professors who were there to make this experience the best possible.”

Jamaica Service Project

Jamaica Cultural Immersion Program

Spend spring break experiencing the Jamaican culture and participating in service projects.

Hollins’ mini Peace Corps project in Jamaica has been in existence since 1988.

“I think what really amazes me about the Jamaica Cultural Immersion Program is the exchange. You are learning something more about the Jamaican culture and they are open to learning about your culture.”
