Why a Women’s College?

Mount Holyoke prepares women for leadership on a global scale. Our graduates thrive in all fields, on all continents, and in a dizzying array of languages. In 1837, we pioneered higher education for women. Today, in the twenty-first century, we continue to embolden women to break boundaries, shake off limits, and take the lead.
