Mount Holyoke College is a liberal arts institution and part of the Seven Sisters colleges. It is a women’s college and also admits those who identify as transgender and non-binary. It is located in South Hadley, MA, and is part of the area’s Five College Consortium which allows students to take classes at any participating college with no additional cost. Mount Holyoke has a “more selective” admissions process.
Mount Holyoke is a welcoming environment for individuals of all backgrounds, a place to establish life-long bonds with others who share the common history of life as a woman (but has expanded to include trans*men and trans*women). Although women have made tremendous gains in equal treatment and rights over the last century, our journey is not yet over.

I once heard Mount Holyoke College described as Harvard meets Hogwarts meets the movie 'Mona Lisa's Smile'. It was not until my first week on campus that I realized the truth behind this description. Not only was I sitting in a classroom with some of the smartest women in the world, but the Gothic architecture created world of magic and opportunity both in the classroom and out.
