About Our College
The first college to open its doors within the town of Greensboro was the woman's college, Greensboro Female College. The school occupied a 25-acre (100,000 m2) campus near the heart of the city within what would become the College Hill Historic District. The institution had its origin in 1833, when the Greensboro Female College was organized as an institution for local children. It was the intent of the Rev. Peter Doub that the institution grow to serve women.
