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.

On top of Andra Day’s historic win for best actress in The United States vs Billie Holiday, the movie’s screenplay was written by Mount Holyoke College Alum, Suzan-Lori Parks.
Parks (Class of ’85) is a Pulitzer Prize winning playwright who studied under James Baldwin.
Baldwin encouraged her to become a playwright, and Parks noted that her writing was inspired by Wendy Wasserstein (a 1971 Mount Holyoke graduate), and credited Mount Holyoke professor, Leah Blatt Glasser, with her success.
We cannot wait to see what she comes out with next!
