As the first of the Seven Sisters, the female equivalent of the once predominantly male Ivy League, Mount Holyoke established higher education for women as a serious endeavor. Our long, distinguished history of educating leaders arises from a powerful combination of: academic excellence in a global learning environment; a tight-knit, diverse, and international community; a worldwide network of influential alumnae; the conviction that women can and should make a difference in the world.
