"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.

The Green and Gold Society

The Green and Gold Society recognizes the important role played by those alumnae/i and friends who consistently support Hollins. Donors to any designation at Hollins for five or more consecutive years are honored with a star ( ) next to their names in the following lists in the Annual Report on Giving: the Giving by Class Year lists, Graduate Alumnae/i, and Family and Friends lists. Membership is also extended to recent alumnae/i who have given every year since graduation.


Marian Wolff Young Society

Named in honor of Marian Wolff Young ’29, who made a gift to Hollins every year from her graduation until her death in 2008 – nearly 80 years! The Marian Wolff Young Society recognizes lifetime giving to Hollins. Originally open only to the class of 1999 and younger, which is when the society was created, starting in the 2012-13 fiscal year the Marian Wolff Young society is open to all class years. Donors who give every year since graduation are recognized with a Y next to the name in the Annual Report on Giving and receive a ribbon to wear at Reunion denoting their membership in this society.


Levavi Oculos Society

The university motto, Levavi Oculos (from the 121st Psalm: "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills"), emphasizes leadership and service in accord with the Hollins value and traditions. This lifetime giving society honors Hollins' most generous donors whose cumulative gifts surpass $1 million. Levavi Oculos member names are engraved on a marble frieze located along the walkway between East and Pleasants on campus.


The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society honors those alumnae/i, parents, and friends who have generously made a bequest provision or planned gift commitment for Hollins in their estate plans.
