“The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things…”—Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872

Welcome to our very first blog post! Whether you are a current student of Reinhardt College, a prospective student, an alumnus, a faculty or staff member, or someone who wandered in from the ‘Net, we are very glad you’re here!

We intend to talk of many things on this blog, but first a bit of background for those of you who may be “meeting” us for the first time. Affiliated with the United Methodist Church, Reinhardt College is a four-year private coeducational college located in Waleska, GA. Waleska is a picturesque little town nestled in the north Georgia hills, just 45 minutes north of Atlanta, and the population doubles when school is in session! Our 1,028 students pursue degrees in any of 38 programs of study at Reinhardt, and with only 15 students in an average freshman class, they can be sure to enjoy plenty of individualized attention from our faculty. Reinhardt College’s slogan is “the way college should be,” but don’t take our word for it: you can check out the school’s Web site at

Historian and writer Shelby Foote has been quoted as saying, "A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library." Whether or not you agree with his assessment, we are proud of what the Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center has to offer Reinhardt students. Our library has over 50,000 books and 80,000 e-books in the collection. We have access to about 200 databases and 34,000 full-text journals, containing millions of articles. Over 300 students a day come into the library, and we would welcome even more!

Well, that’s the commercial-- come back next time and see what we have to talk about next!
