Race to Reunion for alumnae referrals

Shoes_TinkerReunion 2015 class year alumnae are racing to the finish line in the Race to Reunion for 300 new referrals of high school students to Hollins.

The race ends on Friday, May 29, just as Reunion 2015 begins. The reunion class year that crosses the finish line with the most students referred will be announced at the celebration on Saturday, May 30.

With 185 referrals received so far, the class year in the lead is the 30th reunion class of 1985, with 14 referrals as of the middle of April. Two competitors are vying for silver: the class of 2000 with five and the class of 2013 with four referrals.

You can help keep Hollins ahead of the pack by telling a high school student about Hollins, and the admission office about her.
