Share Mount Holyoke Everywhere You Go

In 1837 Mary Lyon pioneered higher education for women in founding Mount Holyoke. And today, nearly 200 years later, we continue to embolden students to break boundaries, shake off limits, and take the lead. Our alumnae and students are the living embodiment of the power of not only the Mount Holyoke experience but of a women’s college in the liberal tradition. Individually and together, we can make a big difference in simple ways.
