My school is very intimate and loving from the professors, students, to the staff members. I was the only pregnant freshman in my class, and even though I felt like I was going to ostracized for being not only being young and pregnant, but Black; I was not. Hollins loves their students and does their best to resolve the issues that we stumble upon.
