Points of Pride

Mount Holyoke provides an intellectually adventurous education in the liberal arts and sciences through academic programs recognized internationally for their excellence and range. The college draws students from all backgrounds into an exceptionally diverse and inclusive learning community. The famous words of Mount Holyoke's founder Mary Lyon—"Go where no one else will go, do what no one else will do"—continue to inspire Mount Holyoke students.

History

Chemist and educator Mary Lyon founded Mount Holyoke College (then called Mount Holyoke Female Seminary) in 1837, nearly a century before women gained the right to vote. As the first of the Seven Sisters—the female equivalent of the once predominantly male Ivy League—Mount Holyoke has led the way in women's education.
