About College Club
In early 1933, Miss Lillian Virginia Hope invited ten other college women, from her community in New Jersey, into her home to discuss creating a community based organization for college women. Originally called, The Fanwood College Women's Club, they held their first meeting on March 13, 1933 and established objectives that have effectively remained unchanged throughout the years:
To increase the interest of young women in attending college.
To develop a scholarship fund.
To enjoy the camaraderie of an interesting group of women.
While the objectives have remained the same, the name was modified in 1977 to "The College Club of Fanwood-Scotch Plains", to incorporate and reflect the communities which it serves.
