Clubs and Groups

Mount Holyoke clubs and groups connect alumnae to one another and to the College. Clubs and groups interact in person and virtually in a myriad of ways—from hosting events to serving the local community to providing career networking opportunities to simply connecting over a shared interest.

Club and group members also volunteer for the Office of Admission to help attract talented students to MHC. Membership in our more than one hundred alumnae clubs and groups is open to any alumna, graduate or non­graduate, who attended Mount Holyoke for at least a year, or any recipient of a graduate degree.

Affiliate Groups
The Alumnae Association encourages alumnae who are members of historically under-represented populations or who actively engage in communicating and/or gathering around a central unifying purpose, mission, background, or activity beyond class affiliation or regional proximity to form Affiliate Groups.

Lyon’s Pride
For lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer alumnae/alumni, students, faculty, and staff of Mount Holyoke College and their partners

Shared Interest Groups

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are more informal than Affiliate Groups. They do not have bylaws, officers, a treasury, or dues. They are simply groups of alums with a common interest and are open to all classes. SIGs interact primarily online, using Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media, and are not governed by the Alumnae Association. If you have a SIG that you’d like listed below, please contact
