Well, it’s about time! There may be no gas-powered vehicles on Antheia Island, but Tremlett College finally has a website. I graduated from Tremlett in 1998 and still consider those years on the island to be some of the greatest and most exciting times of my life. My mother attended Tremlett, as did my grandmother and great-grandmother before her.
The Hardy Women’s Society was founded at Tremlett in 1898. Our organization still has a very close relationship with the college. HWS members Kerry Eilleen and Amanda Kooser have spent quite a bit of time there conducting research at the library for The Hardy Women’s Society Annual Meeting novel.
Many of our HWS members are either alumni or current students at Tremlett. We have fond memories of taking botany class in Rackers Conservatory, walking through the wildflower field in the spring, and riding the waves atop the historic rope ferry over to Fearns. And remember, ladies, stay out of the woods and away from the cliffs!
I know that Tremlett, by design, must always have a very limited enrollment, but I’m thrilled that the college has chosen to share a little bit more about itself with the world. Head on over and read up about Tremlett College, the best-kept secret in American education!
