Since 1837, we’ve made it our mission to prepare women to face the future. To take the lead. To make a difference. The requirements? Be smart, determined, and willing to embrace change.
Mount Holyoke women build robots, stand for social justice, and climb mountains. They write for the Washington Post and give TEDx talks. They start nonprofits. Teach first-aid in Peru. Spend their summers working at the Smithsonian and on Capitol Hill. And that’s all before graduation.
When they’re finished here, they take the lead in other places—Harvard, Yale, Princeton, for starters. They earn Pulitzers and Fulbrights. They lead research in biochemistry and cancer treatment. They become lawyers, teachers, and computer scientists. In other words, they make Mary Lyon proud.
