Founded in 1837 and the first of the Seven Sisters – the female equivalent of the once predominantly male Ivy League – the College is recognized worldwide for its rigorous and innovative academic program, its global community with 27% international students, its legacy of women leaders, and its commitment to connecting the curriculum to career. Through its innovative Lynk Initiative, each student is guaranteed at least $3,000 to fund an internship or research experience.
Students benefit from the Five College Consortium which brings together 32,000 undergraduate students who may cross-register and participate in co-curricular activities at the member institutions: Amherst, Hampshire, Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts. Mount Holyoke considers all students for both merit-based scholarships and need-based financial aid and meets 100% of demonstrated financial need.
I am an Associate Director of Admission at Mount Holyoke College where I help international students through the admission process from start to finish. I love working with Mount Holyoke College's robust and diverse international student population as well as the opportunity to convey the power of a women's liberal arts college experience to prospective students. As a liberal arts college graduate myself, I believe that this experience fosters transformation and life-long learning. In addition to my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree, I hold a Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration where I wrote my thesis on the social and academic transition international students face during their first year of college in the United States.
