Mount Holyoke College has been highly ranked by both U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly.

Mount Holyoke College remains one of the top institutions of higher education in the country, according to the latest rankings by both U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly.

In its 2023 Best Colleges ranking, released on Sept. 12, U.S. News & World Report ranked Mount Holyoke College #36 for National Liberal Arts Colleges. The College was additionally recognized among the best by the publication for Best Undergraduate Teaching, Most International Students, Best Value Schools and Campus Ethnic Diversity.

Washington Monthly has also released its 2022 college rankings. The publication ranked Mount Holyoke at #27 for liberal arts colleges, up 20 positions from its ranking at #47 last year.

“American higher education is fortunate to have a diversity of great institutions. Mount Holyoke College is proud to be consistently recognized as one of them,” said interim President Beverly Daniel Tatum. “We promise our students an intellectually adventurous education, guided by a world-class faculty and supported by outstanding staff, and we deliver on that promise year after year.”

These two rankings follow The Princeton Review’s August release of “The Best 388 Colleges,” where Mount Holyoke College was ranked #1 for “Most LGBTQ-Friendly,” #2 for “Most Active Student Government” and, among private schools, #7 for “Best School for Making an Impact.” The College was also ranked #9 for “Professors Get High Marks,” #9 among private schools for “Best Alumni Networks,” and #11 for “Best College Library.”
