International students comprise 27% of Mount Holyoke's student body and are citizens of over 70 different countries.
As one international student remarked: Due to its globally diverse student body I think Mount Holyoke definitely attracts domestic students who are very open and interested in living in an international community. This made my integration much easier. I also think that my experience here has been so much richer, since I have friends from different backgrounds who have introduced me to new perspectives like no book or movie could have. Some of the midnight discussions about life with my Haitian, Sri Lankan, American and Pakistani friends over a cup of tea have been truly mind-boggling.
