About Mount Holyoke Students

Mount Holyoke College students are passionate about learning—and about who they want to be. They tend to be more self-aware, more adventurous, more confident, more idealistic, more globally aware, and more accomplished than your average college undergrad. They seem to expect more of themselves, of college, and of life in general.

Mount Holyoke students have a track record of academic excellence: nearly 90% were in the top 20% of their graduating high school class. Take a look at the Current Class Profile.

In addition to being successful in the classroom, Mount Holyoke students are diverse. They come from public, private, parochial, and home schools. In addition:

  • Students come from 47 states and nearly 60 countries.
  • Approximately one in every three students is an international citizen or African American, Asian American, Latina, Native American, or multiracial.

When they graduate, our alumnae draw upon the critical thinking skills they learned at Mount Holyoke to succeed across fields, from medicine, business and law to the arts, academia and public service. Read more about our young alumnae.
