Your lessons here at Southern Girl Academy have come to an end for the semester. It is with great pride the board bestows on you the honor of the title Southern Lady.

Mind your manners,

Orientation

Old Main

Old Main at University of Arkansas, which has nothing to do with the Southern Girl Academy in any way, but is quite lovely

Despite the constant moaning and going on that we’re all becoming one homogeneous culture with nothing interesting regionally any more, the more people we meet from other parts of the country, the more we realize Southerners, particularly Southern women, are a bit misunderstood.

This is understandable. We are complex creatures. We’re not ones to brag, but really, there are no more beautiful women in the world. We do everything like we mean it. Our ferocity includes cooking, swearing and praising God. We seek beauty in the ordinary. We find joy in the little things. We observe details so often missed by others.

In an effort to shed some light on the nuance that is Southern femininity, we present a series of classes as part of the Southern Girl Academy. Be sure and attend class each Wednesday. We won’t take attendance, per se, but we so enjoy your company.

Our guest lecturers are happy to take questions, so please feel free to speak up. We’d love to hear from you.
