Hollins seems perfect until you get there. They lure everyone in with the promise of sisterhood, and education in a safe environment. This is a lie. Hollins is full of a bunch of women who stick to their cliques and exclude outsider. If you don't agree with everything a minority or lesbian student has to say than you are a bigot, an anti-feminist and they hate you. The campus itself is not safe at all. It is incredibly easy for anyone to walk/drive around campus without being questioned and it takes security over 15 minutes to respond to any call they receive. Several men come onto campus and harass the girls and there have even been break ins and a rape in the apartments. The university has done nothing to up security after these incidents. If you have a problem with your roommate the res life people will basically tell you to suck it up and ignore you. I had a roommate that stole from me and watched porn while I was in the room and res life told me I had no grounds to change roommates or move out. So in summary the only good thing about Hollins are the academics and even some of the departments are sub par compared to any other college, even a community college.
