Student Life

Mount Holyoke is a vibrant place to live and learn. For starters, the campus is stunning—it’s consistently rated as one of the most beautiful in America. Campus life is just as rewarding. Our students, who literally come from all over the globe, form a tight-knit community that’s extraordinarily supportive and dynamic. You’ll have an open invitation to join any of our more than 150 student organizations and to partake of Mount Holyoke’s full calendar of concerts, exhibits, lectures, parties, and special events.

Even more, you’ll find friends, fun, and culture right outside Mount Holyoke’s gates. The Five College area has scores of student hangouts, films, dance parties, and cultural events.
At Mount Holyoke, we know that growing as a person is as much a part of your education as your academic studies. Joining this unique community offers a distinct opportunity to live among different ideas and different cultures. We encourage our students to laugh, dance, play, and see just how brightly they can shine. Mount Holyoke is a place to discover all that you are—and how you want to change the world.
