To making history!

In honor of Women’s History Month, each year we celebrate Mount Holyoke women who have made their mark since the College’s founding — by a woman! — in 1837.

Some names and accomplishments may be familiar, and some may be new to you: Chloé. Gabrielle. Bryna. Ellen. Sajia.

To learn about today’s Mount Holyoke students and the ways they are making history, explore #WeAreMountHolyoke.
