Hollins seniors

Senior Class Connections: Class of 2015

You've taken your First Step. Now it's time to leave your legacy.

Your senior year is your time - your turn to take your first step on Front Quad, bang the pots for Tinker Scares, and enjoy Ring Night, Tinker Day, Founder's Day, Hundredth Night, and of course, your commencement. It's also a time to look forward to your life as a Hollins alumna. You are a Hollins student for four years, but you are a Hollins alumna for life!

Senior Legacy Program

Hollins Senior Legacy Program

Your gift to the Senior Legacy Program supports the Hollins community by helping to provide the Hollins experience. You have benefited from the legacy of past seniors who have given. When you give, you will pay it forward to the next class of Hollins sisters.

Your gifts support the Hollins Fund, which directly feeds scholarships, faculty salaries, and more.

As you approach the end of your incredible Hollins journey, we hope you will consider giving something back to the institution that has given and will continue to give you so much.

Why Give?

  • Because alumnae did it for you.
  • Because tuition only covers a portion of the cost of your education.
  • Because you want future students to benefit from the caring professors, gorgeous campus, and powerful sisterhood that you did.
  • Because you want Hollins to remain THE place for women who are going places.

How Much Should I Give?

  • EVERY gift is important.
  • Consider making a gift of $20.15 in honor of our class.
  • Join Miss Matty's Circle by making a leadership gift of $250.
  • If every senior makes a gift, think of the impact the class of 2015 will have on Hollins' future!

How Do I Make My Gift?

  • Contact a member of the Senior Legacy Committee.
  • Stop by the Cromer Bergman Alumnae House (#11 on the campus map) with your gift.
  • Give online
  • Send a check (made out to Hollins University) to the Hollins Fund office, Cromer Bergman Alumnae House.

Honor a Professor, Ring Sister, or Family Member

Celebrate that special person who helped make your Hollins journey by making your gift to the Senior Legacy Program in their honor.

Leadership Giving
Miss Matty's Circle and the 1842 Society

Miss Matty's Circle honors Matty Cocke, daughter of Hollins' founder, president of Hollins from 1901 to 1933, and the first woman to head a college in Virginia. "Miss Matty" led Hollins through a transitional period in academics as, for the first time, the school offered a four-year bachelor of arts program. Miss Matty's Circle recognizes young alumnae who are leadership donors; these donors enjoy full membership in the 1842 Society.


Loyal Giving
Marian Wolff Young Society

The Marian Wolff Young Society began as a way to recognize the devotion of the alumna of the same name of the class of 1929. Young made a gift to Hollins every year from her graduation until her death in 2008 - nearly 80 years! Each senior who makes a gift to the Senior Legacy Program gains membership in this elite society. Every subsequent year, your annual gift to the Hollins Fund keeps your membership in good standing, and you will be recognized in our annual report on giving.

Hollins Alumnae Association
Alumnae Congratulations, Class of 2015! When you graduate, you gain membership in the Hollins Alumnae Association. You are joining a sisterhood 16,000 members strong.

Senior brunch

Senior Brunch: May 19, 2015

Toast your senior year at a champagne brunch with Hollins Trustees before commencement weekend. Learn about how you can stay connected with your classmates and Hollins after you leave the front gates.

Share Your Hollins Story

You are one of our best ambassadors for Hollins. Talk about Hollins to your coworkers, your grad school classmates, to young women you meet. Be proud of your achievements, and let young women know that Hollins is a place that will welcome them and offer them limitless possibilities.


Your sister alumnae are your strongest allies and connections. Wherever you go, whatever you need, you can find a fellow alumna who is eager to help. So use the Hollins network.

Send in news about your life for the alumnae magazine

As alumnae, you will receive the HOLLINS alumnae magazine in the mail, so be sure to stay in touch – let us know when you move, go to grad school, get a new job, or your e-mail address changes.

Send in your news – your class and all of us here at Hollins want to hear from you!

Return to Hollins for Reunion

Come back to campus for your two-year reunion in 2017, and for your five-year reunion in 2020!

Give Back

An important part of being a Hollins alumna is giving back to the place that gave you so much.
