Mount Holyoke has great programs in life and human sciences. If you are a student here you will find many opportunities to get involved with your community on campus and beyond. Prepare to study, study, study -- lots of homework folks!!!
Alexandra from Lexington, MA
(first of all, sorry about lack of capitalization, somehow it's not working every time i submit it!) mount holyoke is mohome, an intellectual, comforting, and aesthetic paradise, full of incredible people with incredible dreams, drive, and determination. this is the best atmosphere possible because unlike at my high school, you are not looked down upon for wanting to do well and work hard! it's extremely easy to be involved or go for or speak up about whatever you want here.
