Meet this Year’s FLI Guides

Please check back later for information for fall 2021.

FLI Guides are Hollins students who work alongside our new First-generation and Limited-Income (FLI) students, guiding them throughout their first orientation process and year at Hollins. Helping build relationships, FLI Guides connect new FLI students to campus resources while also encouraging new FLI students to grow and soar within the Hollins community. FLI Guides assist new FLI students by helping facilitate and be present during the FLI program’s numerous communications and interactions during the academic year. They are excited to help and journey with you, our new FLI students!



I’m Summer (she/her), I’m a sophomore about to declare a double major in sociology and public health with a minor in Spanish. As a first year, I participated in Model UN and plan to become involved in other clubs as my time at Hollins goes on. When I’m not in class you can find me attending campus lectures or reading in the library; don’t be afraid to say hi!
