Town Girls Association

For many years women at the university were required to live on campus. The only exceptions made were for students who were from Chapel Hill or the surrounding area who could live at home. These students were known informally as "town girls." In an era when social activity and intramural sports were often concentrated around dorms, the Chapel Hill students started the Town Girls Association. Active from the 1930s through the early 1960s, the group met regularly, fielded intramural sports teams, and sponsored dances and other events.
