The campus is beautiful. If you like nature or taking walks, it's a great place. The people here are very friendly, the dining hall food is good, and I haven't yet had a professor I didn't like. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with club and varsity sports, including equestrian teams.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Like many schools, the dorms are not air-conditioned, and some don't have elevators. The campus isn't as accessible as it could be for students with mobility issues. The school's communication with students isn't the best either.

I liked the community that I was able to find at Mount Holyoke, although I believe that was more due to the individuals themselves rather than the school itself. I really enjoyed a number of the courses that I was able to take, but many of them were from visiting lecturers. I also have had difficulty completing my majors because there are not enough classes for everyone interested, and many majors are being consolidated into one department (environmental science, geology, and geography becoming one major, for example).

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a good deal of classism due to the school being the price that it is, and at the end of the day, the school cares more about money than its students.
