Massachusetts Colleges and Universities

Massachusetts, one of America's original 13 states, has enjoyed a long history of supporting public and private colleges and universities. From its historical and culturally rich New England seaport cities to its famous college towns in the West side of the state, Massachusetts offers potential students the rare blend of big city entertainment with rustic seashore communities and burgeoning ski resorts.

Boston, with its half-million residents, plays host to unparalleled historical, cultural, fine dining, nightlife, and recreational facilities. But it is also home to Harvard University, the nation's first university founded in 1636, long respected for educational excellence at its schools of business, law, and medicine. South Hadley, just north of Springfield, is home to Mount Holyoke College, a member of the renowned Five-College Consortium of Hampshire College, Amherst College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
