“Alumnae have gone out into the world and done incredible work, and then they get to come back and bring that love of Hollins… For students, that truly has an impact.”

“Communication and a lot of other skills I have learned are directly transferable – they don’t have to be translated to fit into education because they are a natural part of education.”

“This is where I have had the most experiences, where I’ve been myself the most. I’ve been challenged, and I’ve challenged myself. It all happened here. It all happened at Hollins.”

We push hard, play hard, and perform at our peak.

Whether on the field or in the stands, we have a history of coming together to support our teams. We are competitors committed to each other and dedicated to teamwork, tradition, and the pursuit of athletic pride.

Tradition is the core of who we are.

Ours is a world of beloved tradition, finding many ways to connect to the women who’ve come before us and the women to come after. All of our traditions invite us to come together, to laugh, and to create memories we’ll share for lifetimes.
