Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • It is freaking cold in the winter. You will never regret that extra blanket, or pair of gloves, except when they turn up the heat in the dorms. Then you'll be sleeping in a T-shirt and shorts in the middle of a snowstorm.
  • Most MHC students are very friendly.
  • Most MHC students change their major at least once. Some students graduate and still don't know what they want to do with their lives.
  • The dining halls serve a lot of tofu (and various other items that are used as meat substitutes). You might actually start to like it, but, in general, stay away from anything called "seitan."
  • You don't need to bring a lot of stuff. You'll spend most of your time doing things, not sitting in your room.
  • You will, however, want to bring a lot of posters to cover your walls with. Just make sure you also bring a hammer and some sturdy nails or tacks, because those dorm room walls can be hard as a rock, and quite often tape or other sticking methods won't survive the humidity.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call the Admissions Office at (413) 538 - 2023 during business hours. All on-campus interviews should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the desired interview date. Off-campus interviews with an Admissions Director travelling to your area or with Alumnae Admissions Representatives may also be scheduled. For more information on representatives in your area see the web site:
Campus Tours
Mount Holyoke students lead three regularly scheduled tours a day during office hours throughout the year. No reservations are necessary. Special group tours may be scheduled.
Overnight Visits
Some days are set aside for prospective students who wish to visit campus for an overnight and spend some time with a current student. High school seniors and transfer students may visit on available nights during the fall, and admitted students and transfer students who wish to enter in the upcoming fall may visit during the spring. All visits should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Go here for more details:
