Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris as they deal with the aftermath of the horrific terrorist attacks that occurred Friday night.
Since the news broke of the attacks, we have been in close, constant contact with the director of the Hollins Abroad – Paris program. We are grateful to report that all eight of our students who are studying there this semester are safe and accounted for, and we are coordinating communication between them and their families.
To the best of our knowledge, our alumnae who reside in Paris are safe.
Hollins alumnae and staff, including President Gray, and members of our 1842 Society were in Paris earlier this week to celebrate 100-plus years of our Hollins Abroad programs. They had traveled on to London a couple of days before the attacks and are safe.
We are focused now on ensuring our students’ continued safety and security. The recommendations of U.S. and French authorities will be instrumental in our actions moving forward.
We will share more information as it becomes available.
