Hollins to Take Part in Va. Private College Week, July 24-29

Hollins University

Hollins University is one of 24 independent colleges and universities welcoming prospective students and their families during Virginia Private College Week, July 24 – 29.

The event is sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).

Along with the other participating institutions, Hollins will offer campus tours and information sessions about admission, financial aid, and academic programs. University officials will also address some common myths about the cost of a private college education.

“Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” said CICV President Robert Lambeth. “I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach.”

Students who visit at least three institutions during the week will receive three application fee waivers. Students may use these waivers to apply to any three participating CICV colleges for free. In addition, students visiting at least three institutions will also be eligible for a drawing for a $500 Amazon gift card.

Sessions at Hollins will begin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, July 24 – 28, and at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 29. Students and families may register by calling Hollins’ Office of Admission at 800-456-9595.
