Why Mount Holyoke
Build bonds. Blaze trails.
At Mount Holyoke, our students, faculty, staff and alum community have never been afraid to be out in front. Here, we build enduring bonds, break through barriers, and blaze even bigger trails for the generations to come — so we can leave the world better than we found it.
We believe in the strength of connections. That's why we build bridges among people and across disciplines. Between cultures and through ideas. In the classroom and around the globe. It's how discovery goes deeper, sparks spread further and we push beyond the limits of what we thought was possible. And together, we guide, challenge and support each other to grow and reach the places we want to go.
Every day, each of our students cultivates the competence, confidence and courage to make an impact — whether on a personal, community or global level. And we're always moving forward. Because when you're out in front, you realize just how boundless you are.
