13,000-plus Montreat College alumni are connected through their shared experiences of community, perseverance, and servant leadership. The Montreat College Alumni Leadership Council is proud to recognize the innovative ways our graduates have taken their experiences here to lean into their calling and career. Created in the Cove strives not only to recognize the entrepreneurial spirit of our alumni but also to bolster their efforts.

Our Vision

Created in the Cove is intended for engaging with our alumni and their businesses. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic we hastened our efforts in an attempt to come along side our alumni during a difficult time.

This platform will function similarly to a Chamber of Commerce within our alumni base. While Montreat College does not directly endorse these alumni owned businesses, we do support their efforts and encourage everyone to shop and source locally when able.

We invite you to use the Created in the Cove network to connect with Montreat College alumni owned businesses near you! We are currently accepting registrations for a searchable database, launching in early 2021!
