Mount Holyoke College class of 2024 at Convocation


“Go forward, attempt great things, accomplish great things”

— Mary Lyon, Founder of Mount Holyoke College

Commencement is a treasured ceremonial occasion that celebrates students who have graduated from Mount Holyoke College after completing all academic requirements and obligations. Typically, Mount Holyoke holds one annual Commencement in May to honor all graduates.

This year, Commencement will be held outdoors on Pageant Green, the lovely knoll between the Gettell Amphitheater and Lower Lake Road.

Rest assured that as we plan for this new location, we are keeping accessibility for all our graduates and guests top of mind. More details will be forthcoming.

Mount Holyoke's one-hundred eighty-seventh Commencement for the class of 2024 will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2024.
