Hollins to Participate in Virginia Private College Week, July 30 – August 4

Hollins University is among 24 colleges and universities across the Commonwealth taking part in Virginia Private College Week, July 30 – August 4. The event is sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).

Hollins and the other participating institutions will offer campus tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid, and academic programs. Hollins officials will also address some common myths about the cost of a private college education.

Students who visit at least three institutions during the week will receive three application fee waivers. Students may use these waivers to apply to any three participating CICV colleges for free.

“Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” explains Robert Lambeth, CICV president. “I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach.”

Hollins will host daily open house programs for prospective students and their families. Sessions will be offered at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday – Friday, and 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 4. Visit here to register. For more information, contact the Hollins University Admission Office at 1-800-456-9595 or
