The Benne� Herstory

Campus Life Campus life provides each student with important opportuni�es for learning and prac�cing the posi�ve values of communal living. The College’s approach to residen�al living is to s�mulate independence, cri�cal thinking skills, and maturity as the student is learning to evolve individually yet collec�vely in a group environment. The Resident Housing consists of Barge Hall, Cone Hall, Honors Hall, Jones Hall, Pfeiffer Hall, Player Hall, and Reynolds Hall.

Our history began in 1873 and our “herstory” emerges in 1926 as the college reorganized to exclusively educate women. As a historically black, student centered, accredited, private four-year liberal arts college for women, we stand tall and strong on the tradi�ons of sisterhood. This founda�on of tradi�ons nurtures and supports Benne� Belles as they pursue their higher educa�on ambi�ons. The College offers women an educa�on conducive to excellence in scholarly pursuits; prepara�on for leadership roles in the workplace, society, and the world; and life-long learning in a technologically advanced, complex global society. As a United Methodist Churchrelated ins�tu�on, Benne� College promotes morally grounded matura�on, intellectual honesty, purposeful public service, and responsible civic ac�on.
