- Chemist and educator Mary Lyon founded Mount Holyoke College (then called Mount Holyoke Female Seminary) in 1837, nearly a century before women gained the right to vote. Today, her famous words—"Go where no one else will go, do what no one else will do"—continue to inspire Mount Holyoke students.
- Located in South Hadley, Massachusetts, Mount Holyoke is 90 minutes west of Boston and three hours north of New York City. We encourage prospective students to visit our beautiful campus, talk to professors and coaches, learn about the tremendous advantages of the Five College Consortium, tour our top-notch facilities, and chat with current students.
- Mount Holyoke's superb resources and facilities include a 700,000-volume library; a $36-million, state-of-the-art Science Center; recently expanded and renovated music and art buildings; and first-rate sports and dance complex, Equestrian Center, and golf course.
- Mount Holyoke offers 14 varsity sports programs and seven competitive club sports teams.
