Mount Holyoke Prepares Women for
"Purposeful Engagement" With the World

WHEN M ARY LYON OPENED the Mount
Holyoke Female Seminary in western Massachusetts in 1837, the United States had 120 colleges
for men and none for women. FDR's path-breaking labor secretary Frances Perkins, obstetrical
anesthesiologist Virginia Apgar, and playwright
Wendy Wasserstein passed through its Gothic
halls and strolled the campus landscaped by the
son of Frederick Law Olmsted. Even 16-year-old
Emily Dickinson, the poet and "Belle" of nearby
Amherst, attended classes for a year.
Following in their footsteps today are more
than 600 international students, over a quarter
of the student body. "You walk through a miniU.N. on campus," said Eva Paus, director of the
McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives. Presi- President Lynn Pasquerella believes
dent Lynn Pasquerella calls it "a microcosm of women's colleges still 'have so
much to offer.'
the world." It is the second largest concentration
of international students at any four-year college. International and domestic students
alike are drawn to the country's oldest college for women with a longstanding commitment to admit young women of talent with little regard to their ability to pay.
Mount Holyoke is not a newcomer to internationalization. The first international
student, a Canadian, arrived two years after Lyon opened the doors to a college
offering advanced instruction in "science, literature, and refinement" for the good
of "our country and for the world." Mary Woolley, a storied successor and the only
female U.S. delegate to a League of Nations disarmament conference in 1932, wrote,
"Internationalism has been woven into the very warp and woof of this institution
from the beginning." Today's mission statement speaks of providing "an intellectually
adventurous education in the liberal arts and sciences" to prepare students "for lives
of thoughtful, effective, and purposeful engagement in the world."
