Now that the admission question is settled, the real question is this: What will you do with your strength and conviction and awareness and intellect and curiosity and caring?
We say it’s time to get moving. To get inspired. To get global. To get intersectional. To find mentors and form networks. To land internships and study abroad. To confront environmental, political and ethical challenges. To develop the skills to influence and empower others. To take advantage of everything Mount Holyoke stands for.

When the weight of a global topic feels too big — too daunting, too insurmountable, too entrenched — people often feel too small. Too small to effect change and too small to lead the way forward.
When the weight of a global topic is tackled via a movement of audacious individuals — who are open and willing to share their stories of successes and struggles, collaborations and innovations — a palpable shift can begin to unfold. The shift from “this feels impossible” to “this feels possible” requires a spark. A spark in energy, in mentors, in collective thought and momentum.
