Small town of South Hadley. They were having a town tag sale, so everyone was out, and it seemed like a very nice, friendly, quaint town. It was real America.

Campus Visit Notes for Mount Holyoke College


Visit Description:

We only went on a campus tour, but it was absolutely wonderful. The campus itself is a very reasonable size, and we were able to cover 99 percent of it on the tour. The layout was a little confusing, but we got the hang of it after a while. We went on a vacation day, so very few people were around.
