McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives

In addition to managing study abroad and international internships, the McCulloch Center can help with questions about getting an exemption from the language requirement, filing your U.S. tax return (required of all international students), securing an emergency loan, covering medical expenses, and obtaining a Massachusetts ID.

Career Development Center

The Daniel L. Jones Career Development Center (CDC) offers students and alumnae of the College opportunities to connect their education in the liberal arts with long-term professional success. Our students pursue a wide range of career options, from museum education and nonprofit leadership to management consulting and finance. The CDC offers a variety of career exploration, networking, internship, and job search services.

Academic Advising

The Mount Holyoke academic advising system has as its guiding principle the belief that academic advising is a natural component and extension of faculty teaching. The primary academic issues in advising international students have to do with previous language experience and the advanced nature of courses in many international educational systems. An additional component of advising international students is the recognition of social and cultural adjustments that are superimposed on the normal developmental transitions for these students.

Religious and Spiritual Life

Mount Holyoke is one of the few liberal arts colleges in the country to actively support nine faith groups on campus. Whether you adhere to one particular faith or are a nondenominational seeker looking for a spiritual home or homes here, you will have many opportunities to learn about, explore, and participate in a wide range of traditions and activities. Eliot House, the center of spiritual life at Mount Holyoke, bustles with students, faculty, and staff who attend the many programs, lunches, workshops, services, feasts, and festivals that are held there.
