Highlights of a Mount Holyoke Education
The Five College Consortium
Mount Holyoke is part of the Five College Consortium, one of the oldest and most robust consortia in the U.S. Mount Holyoke students enjoy the rich resources of Amherst, Hampshire and Smith colleges, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst at no additional cost. Even the bus system is free. They join 36,000 students (men and women) within a 10-kilometer radius, and have seamless social and academic access to more than 6,000 classes and 700 clubs as well as cultural events, parties and famous performers. Students can also pursue a Five-College program or major.
To fuel students' careers, Mount Holyoke offers an innovative framework of resources that connects class learning to career goals. Students are also guaranteed a paid (USD 3,000 – 3,600) internship or research experience.
