Before the Civil War, Hollins used the labor of enslaved people to build and maintain the grounds.
In addition, many students brought "servants" with them who were likely slaves.

Hollins University is a private university in Hollins, Virginia.
Founded in 1842 as Valley Union Seminary in the historical settlement of Botetourt Springs, it is one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States. Other prominent alumnae include pioneering sportswriter Mary Garber, 2006 Man Booker Prize winner Kiran Desai, UC-Berkeley's first tenured female physicist (and a principal contributor to theories for detecting the Higgs boson) Mary K.
Hollins was known as a rigorous institution where degrees were not easily earned during Cocke's tenure.
There will be workshops and educational booths, as well as entertainment and food–all free and open to the public with no advance registration required.
Due to their financial limitations, Hollins was not able to hire high-quality faculty or assemble an up-to-date library or laboratory, making accreditation hard to achieve.
This was not unusual for the time; as of 1916, only seven southern women's college were certified by professional organizations as "standard," while both Hollins and Sweet Briar were designated as "approximate". As of 2011, Hollins offers a graduate-level certificate in Children's Book Illustration.
