MHC is also known for its beautiful campus, which regularly ranks in the top ten.
As a politically liberal all women's school, MHC has a reputation for having a vocal gay population, but is viewed as a kinder, gentler alternative to the militant, manly lesbianism of Smith College. MHC is also seen as more friendly to males with the yearly dances "Undressage" and "Vegas Night," where the girls parade in lingerie.
This is a school for overachievers.
MoHo: "I took thirty tests this week and wrote four hundred pages in papers, so this weekend I'm gonna get smashed and go dance in my underwear. I earned it, damnit! And then, on Monday afternoon after class, I'm going to go tutor poverty-striken orphans. Tuesday I campaign on the social cause of the week. It's just the Mount Holyoke lifestyle!"
Moho Girl: Mount Holyoke, I got rejected from Smith and Wellesley. But it's cool, at least this way I get to bring my champion polo pony with me!
Guy: Thats nice...Smith is really close to here, right?
