Why Mount Holyoke: A focus on liberal arts where I can explore multiple interests. A space that focuses the experiences of women and gender non-conforming people.

Favorite places so far: My favorite places on campus so far has to be the greenhouse and the library. The area with the Chihuly sculpture is gorgeous and the glass ceiling is a great place to watch rain storms. I grew up in the area and my favorite places to visit are Mt.
