Most Helpful Review for Mount Holyoke College

Mount Holyoke is a great school with great facilities. There is also a great 5 College consortium that allows you to further expand your depth of knowledge and connections with students/professors in your field. The small class sizes give students a greater opportunity to engage professors and try your hand at holding a discussion. There are many opportunities on-campus and off-campus to seek help in writing, public speaking, critical analysis etc. The work is tough but so rewarding!

    Mount Holyoke has been an absolutely amazing academic experience that I have been lucky to receive. Socially, maybe not the most exciting, but it has allowed me to focus on my work. I absolutely love my courses and my friends.

    Exhilarating place to be, to learn and push your boundaries. Charming, home-like. Considered an ivy-league for women, it is a very promising place for young leaders.

    Mount Holyoke College is an accepting, liberal small college. Everyone is friendly and the classes are challenging (but not too challenging). It is very easy to feel apart of the sisterhood and immersed in campus life.

    It is an academically challenging school. However it provides students with every opportunity to succeed giving them outstanding opportunities that they would not have received otherwise. They also have an incredible equestrian team that is both competitive and gives students a nice balance to the heavy academics.
