Greenville Woman’s College (GWC) was founded in 1854 on what is now Heritage Green in downtown Greenville. In 1938, it merged with Furman University, and in 1961 its campus closed down permanently. In the century it existed, GWC celebrated many unique traditions such as an annual May Day festival and pageant, and a rich history of writing postcards. You can rediscover some of these lost traditions and forgotten students thanks to the Greenville Woman’s College Yearbooks and Greenville Woman’s College Historical Images collection now available online. The Digital Collections Center partnered with the Greenville Public Library System to scan all the yearbook volumes in their collections (1901-1932). View Digital Collection.
