One of my good friends from high school also went to Holyoke, and we compared notes on how we knew NO ONE on our dorm floor (she's transferring). If you walk around campus, you will not see girls laughing or having fun. You will see small groups or individuals walking from point a to point b, hating their lives. I had a very big breakdown at the end of the year because I couldn't stand being there anymore. Although the food and some faculty are great, it isn't worth the mental, emotional, and social suffering that you'll experience. Please, please, please, if you think of yourself as remotely normal, and are not super feminist, a lesbian, or an exchange student, take a good look at other schools if you can. I wish I had listened to the reviewers before me.
