Clubs and Groups

Clubs and groups affiliated with the Alumnae Association of Mount Holyoke College connect alumnae to one another and to the College. Members of clubs and groups interact in person and virtually—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 often volunteer for College offices, such as the Office of Admission, the Office of Advancement, or the Career Development Center.

Membership in our more than one hundred alumnae clubs and groups is open to any alum, graduate or non-graduate, who attended Mount Holyoke for at least a year, or any recipient of a graduate degree from Mount Holyoke College.
