    I found my second home at Hollins University. I met amazing friends from all around the U.S and around the world as well. Hollins has given me the opportunity to travel abroad to Jamaica and Rome, Italy. It has given me the skills and knowledge necessary for my future career through its rigorous academic environment and leadership studies courses with the Batten Leadership Institute. I love that it is a small campus with small classes. I love that I practically know everyone that is part of the Hollins community. Hollins is located in Roanoke where there are lots of natural beauty that can be appreciated through hiking adventures to Carvin's Cove, Cascades Falls, McAfee Knob, Sharp Top Trail and more. Hollins has a lot to offer and I'm glad I chose to attend this beautiful school!

    Attending Hollins University has truly been one of the best decisions I have ever made. As a theater major Hollins has been able to provide my with ample opportunity to showcase my talent and be part of a wonderful and cohesive theatre department! Because of Hollins I have been able to Study abroad in London, have several prestigious internships, and network and meet with so many amazing professionals that i'm sure will help me in my post-grad job search. Additionally, the friendships I've made here are going to last a lifetime, I've met so many strong and amazing people that I would honestly do anything for! I cannot be more thankful for my experience at this school, it truly has been the best 4 years of my life!
    Such a close-knit and supportive community! I'm a first-year and I've already found a great friend group. My classes are challenging and professors are always willing and excited to answer questions or solve problems. The campus is gorgeous and pretty small, so walking between classes rarely takes longer than ten minutes.
