Campus Visit Notes for Mount Holyoke College


Visit Description:

This was our second visit and so glad we did it! Last year it was dark & rainy, not many students about. This year, it was beautiful & sunny, blossoms on the trees and many students on the lawn, studying on chairs in the common, etc. Everyone is so friendly! Lot's of great traditions & the class colors and mascots make for a very Hogwarts feel.
