Transfer Students - Elizabeth Hedrick

“Choosing to enroll at Hollins was the best decision I ever made for both my academic and professional life. I agreed to ‘just check it out,’ and I knew immediately upon seeing the campus that I was home. I didn’t look or apply anywhere else after my visit. I could confidently say that I knew where I would be finishing my undergraduate degree: Hollins University.”
