Chartered in 1893 as the Woman's College of Frederick, Hood College has grown and changed immensely since its beginnings. In 1913, the institution was renamed for an early benefactor, Margaret Scholl Hood, who staunchly believed in higher education for women. She donated funds for a parcel of land that enabled the school to add a second location. From its founding, the institution has attracted talented faculty and enthusiastic students, developed vibrant traditions, and garnered national recognition. In the century since the college was renamed, it has graduated over 10,000 alumni and expanded its mission to educate both women and men. In the 1970s, the school accepted male students, and since 2003, it has been fully coeducational with men in residence on campus. Hood College offers fascinating glimpses of life and learning on the campus from its earliest days to modern times.
