Hollins University was established in the year 1842 as Valley Union Seminary after a 6-year long quest by its founder, Charles Lewis Cocke, to provide higher education for women in the South at a time when women's education was considered nothing but a fruitless business. Through the years, it has evolved from a coeducational college to an exclusive college for women under several changes in the institution's name. In 1958, it started offering graduate programs for coed students until finally becoming Hollins University in the year 1998.
Today, Hollins University celebrates its 175th year in providing quality higher education.

Hollins is an amazing place. I received a great education and made lifelong friends. I also was able to spend a semester abroad in Japan, which was an unforgettable experience that helped shape who I am as a person.
