This summer 2011 issue, the second-ever digital version of Hollins magazine, is a bit of a departure from our usual text-oriented approach. We found we had much to show and less to say. In the study-abroad photo contest for students, for example, the photographs speak volumes about the range of options for Hollins students; and the photos of the products made or designed by “Enterprising Alumnae” show that creativity is alive and well among alumnae. Also, be sure to try your hand at what I think is the magazine’s first-ever crossword puzzle, which features Margaret Wise Brown ’32, whose life and works the university is celebrating all year.
And don’t miss the tribute to retiring professor of sociology Bill Nye, who for many decades has used jazz to inform his classes, his research, and his life.
Thank you for taking the time to peruse this edition of Hollins. As ever, your comments are welcome.
