Mount Holyoke’s science labs: an inside look

When Mary Lyon founded Mount Holyoke in 1837, she firmly believed in the power of studying the sciences. Herself a chemist, she introduced students to “a new and unusual way” to learn science: by collecting field samples and real data and by inviting renowned scientists to speak at the College. Today, her legacy of inspiring students to pursue careers in the sciences persists and Mount Holyoke remains a strong leader in scientific education.

Recently, our science lab facilities were deemed among the best in the nation, per the 2019 Princeton Review. As someone who has spent many long hours in our Science Center’s beautiful laboratories, lecture halls and study spaces, it’s easy to see why. Here’s an inside look at these top-ranked facilities!
