  • Excellent atmosphere for studying. God forbid if you need to take a break from studying, however. Being an all-female campus, there is either no social events, or very immature ones,…

  • Oct-23-2014 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I haven't been to the campus myself, so I can't really speak to the quality of the food, but from what I've seen it looks alright.

    It's okay. It kind of sucks that you have to have a meal plan, and cooking your own food is almost impossible. The food in the dining halls are not too bad.

    Pretty good, to be honest. Lots of vegetarian options.

    Mount Holyoke has pretty good food compared to other institutions. About once a month a dining hall will have Gracious Dinner, which is a night when they dress up the dining room and feature a meal from another culture. You can look up the menus of the dining halls online and choose where you would like to go.

    We have upwards of seven dining halls; the food is well-crafted and sometimes delicious, but is definitely what you make of it. Avoid anything with tempeh or seitan.

    Most dorms either have a kitchen where they have a continental breakfast or an actual dining hall with full meals three times a day. There is also a campus center open with food, snacks, and a coffee shop. There is a coffee shop in the library and a little shopping center across the street with a few restaurants,a frozen yogurt place, a deli, and a coffee shop. All in all, the meal plan is a necessity.

    The food is wonderful. There are multiple dining halls across campus attached to the dorms. Most of them have different menus from one another. There is also Blanchard Campus Center, with a grill, salad bar, sandwich station and more which is open until 2am for those who can't catch lunch or dinner at a dining hall. All of the food is like home cooking!

    There is no Greek Life at Mount Holyoke. However, there is a club for it that goes and does activities together as a slightly toned down Greek Life option.

    There is no Greek life at Mount Holyoke but we could be considered the largest sorority on Earth. Saying that, sororities were banned in the early part of the 20th century to create a stronger community among all of the students. Thus far, this strategy seems to have worked.

    We do not have a Greek life and it is refreshing. We build bonds among each other and I think this is better than belonging to one specific house.

    We don't have any greek life, but if you are really interested, some sororities at UMass will let you join there.
