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!

    It is a beautiful place to study. All the students, professors and faculty members are very helpful. There is always going to be someone who will hold the door for you if they see you coming. You will see people smiling at you when you pass by.

    I really feel like this school would be a great place to learn, as I am a woman who loves to be around and work with other women. The opportunity to study at four other close-by schools sounds wonderful as well. I'm definitely going to be visiting soon.

    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.
