Student Life

Everyday life at Hollins can be a bit zany. We like to think of it as just another expression of our unique creativity.

We don’t engineer it. It’s as spontaneous as a late-night trip to Walmart in pajamas. Or painting messages on the Rock. Or dying your hair with multicolors on a bet.

The fabric of life at Hollins has many threads, yet the pattern is harmonious. People respect and appreciate each other here — and care, too.
