What are the absolute "must-dos before graduation" at Mount Holyoke? For some students, it's jumping in Upper Lake or visiting the Equestrian Center to pet horses. For others, it's getting involved with community-based learning, taking an art class, or going to New York to see a Broadway musical.
African/Caribbean Day, a yearly event hosted by MHACASA, is one of the many cultural celebrations at Mount Holyoke. Featuring a mix of entertainment and educational elements, the evening includes a meal with African and Caribbean foods, a show, and an after party.
