Local Colleges

Holyoke is considered one of the “crossroads of New England,” nestled in the heart of a college-rich region in Western Massachusetts. Headlined by UMass Amherst, the flagship institution in the state system, these schools have driven the economy of the area for years and have created a stable economic base which has allowed the region to thrive. Education is such a pivotal portion of the development of the Pioneer Valley that the Hartford-Springfield region has been termed the “knowledge corridor,” with the highest concentration of professional workers in the United States.
