In addition to celebrating the class of 2013, this year’s commencement closes a year of celebration as Mount Holyoke marks 175 years of Women of Influence. The first institution of higher learning for women, Mount Holyoke challenged the status quo by offering rigorous academics and welcoming students from all socioeconomic backgrounds.
Throughout these 175 years, Mount Holyoke has led the way in women’s education and, in turn, has changed the world. The College is proud to commemorate this milestone as it continues its commitment to advancing women’s achievement and leadership.
A jam-packed crowd cheered more than 600 graduates on Sunday, May 19 in Mount Holyoke College's 176th annual commencement in Gettell Amphitheater.
Before the College's 176th Commencement, students share their thoughts on their relationship with the Mount Holyoke community and their accomplishments.
