Hollins University is among the 23 colleges and universities across the commonwealth taking part in Virginia Private College Week (VPCW), July 25-30.
Hollins will offer campus tours and information sessions about academic programs, admissions, financial aid, and student life, and also address some of the common myths about the cost of a private college education.
“Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” said Robert Lambeth, president of the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV), which is hosting Virginia Private College Week. “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.”
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. In addition, those who visit at least three colleges will be entered in a drawing to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.
Sessions at Hollins and most other participating colleges will begin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, and at 9 a.m. on Saturday. To sign up for a session at Hollins, go to our VPCW registration page. For more information about CICV and VPCW, visit the Virginia Private Colleges website.
