The Mount Holyoke Club of Boston & Western Suburbs
The No. 1 MHC Club in the Northeast Region
We are a city of uncommon alums
ince 1837, Mount Holyoke College has been a lightning rod of attracting both the best and the brightest to its campus. It only makes sense that the largest city in the Northeast Region does the same. Here, at the Mount Holyoke Club of Boston, we want to take all of that free and creative drive from our students and alums and replicate it here.
oston is a city of firsts. In 1848, the Boston Public Library became the world’s first publicly supported free municipal library. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell demonstrated the first telephone here in this very city. And in 2004, Boston was the first U.S. city to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. It is a city that rewards trailblazers from all walks of life, and our club can show you the way.

Boston MoHos meet your New Mayor!
We have a fellow Seven Sister Sibling running this town.
Major congratulations to Smith College alum Kim Janey to be interim Boston Mayor. She will be both the first woman and first person of color to lead the great city of Boston. She will be filling the role that stands to be vacated soon by Marty Walsh, who President-elect Joe Biden has picked to serve as his Secretary of Labor.
Janey will hold office until a new mayor is inaugurated, either in November, when the city’s mayoral election is scheduled, or in a special election held before that date.
We look forward to Janey’s leadership and charisma as she takes the reins to lead Boston into the new year.
