Gorgeous campus, no matter the season. The grounds are always perfectly manicured, and the buildings invoke images from Harry Potter. The library is incredible to visit, from that first step into the atrium to exploring all the little nooks and crannies that come with a historic building.

So sweet. Great setting. Warm with lots of light. On a lake. And a college campus. They serve a huge Sunday brunch once a month during the school year. They are usually holiday themed. Everything is delicious!

This college is one of the most beautiful in the country! This is the perfect place to go for a walk. There is a beautiful lake that is one mile around. There are beautiful nature sites to see, just waiting to be discovered!

Mount Holyoke is one of the most stately college campuses in America. The main campus consists of majestic red-brick buildings, but two lakes off to the side are surrounded by trees and the larger lake is well away from routine traffic. The whole campus is sufficiently compact that you can walk most of it in two hours or just the... More

My daughter and I visited the college as this is one of choices. The faculty was very informative and friendly. I understand why it is one of the elite schools.

Most gorgeous Campus landscape you can hope to find. The dormitories are furnished like a five star hotel.

Mount Holyoke is historical. Established in 1837 as Mount Holyoke Women's Seminary, the college has been dedicated to women's education for over a hundred years now. The neo gothic architecture, the sprawling lawns, the two lakes and the equestrian centre are not to be missed in a visit to Mount Holyoke.

Amherst has the views, Smith college is hip. Mount holyoke is ho hum. South Hadley is an ugly dying industrial town on the Connecticut river. except near the college, which reeks of endowment wealth. The campus grounds are a miniature version of Smith college....main halls. museum and greenhouse. It lacks the personality of Smith. I hold no political views, but... More
