Lunch with a Current Student

We invite prospective students to have lunch in a dining center with a current Mount Holyoke student and enjoy informal conversation with her.  It's a great way to learn more about Mount Holyoke. Lunch visits are available during the academic year only. Visits take place Monday-Friday, from noon - 1 pm. Please complete the Lunch Visit Request Form at least 1 week prior to your requested date. We will send you an email to confirm.

On-campus interview: 30 minutes

Mount Holyoke recommends scheduling a personal interview in combination with your campus tour. While interviews are not required as part of the application process, they are one of the best ways for us to learn more about your academic goals and personal experiences. We suggest scheduling an interview during your junior year or the summer/fall of your senior year. On-campus interviews are conducted by a trained student fellow in the Office of Admission. Interviews can generally be scheduled Monday - Friday and some Saturdays year round. Please call the Office of Admission at 413-538-2023 to schedule your interview.

If you cannot visit campus, you may schedule an off-campus interview with an admission director traveling to your area or with an alumnae admission representative. If an admission director is traveling to your area and if we have your current email, we will contact you.

To schedule an on- or off-campus interview, please contact the Office of Admission. To be added to our mailing list, complete our Request Info form.

Student Athletes

We encourage all student-athletes to tour the Kendall Sports and Dance Complex and schedule a time to meet with a coach during your visit. You can also tour the Equestrian Center, just a short walk from the heart of Mount Holyoke’s campus. The facilities allow students to pursue dressage, jumping, hunter seat equitation, and cross-country training. The center’s visiting hours are Monday - Friday 10:00 am–4:00 pm. The Equestrian Center encourages you to call 413-538-2272 or email prior to your visit.
