Why Hollins University?\--You get the women's college advantage.\Just ask our graduates, or any graduate of a women's college, for that matter. They'll tell you about the confidence that comes from being in charge: of clubs, of the student government, of classroom discussions. You'll also join Hollins' global network of alumnae, who open doors to internships and career opportunities that can last a lifetime. \ \--You get unparalleled leadership training.\No matter what you decide to pursue after college, good leadership skills will help you do it better. And through our Batten Leadership Institute, you identify and hone those skills. In fact, you'll learn more in three years than most people learn in a lifetime.\ \--You get to write. A lot.\Since 1960, Hollins has produced amazing writers in our undergraduate and graduate creative writing program. Our students work with talented faculty members who are published poets, novelists, essayists, and scholars. We have received national acclaim for the works of our graduates (four have won Pulitzer Prizes) and for our distinctive approach to teaching.\ \--You get to study abroad.\On average, more than 50% of our students have an international learning experience. One of the reasons is that Hollins offers generous aid to help students better afford to study abroad. We offer our own programs in Paris and London, as well as the opportunity to study on affiliated programs in 14 other locations.\ \--You get to put theory into practice.\Two-thirds of our students complete an internship. Our program places students in companies, nonprofits, museums, law firms, and hospitals, both in the United States and abroad.
