Family and Friends Weekend

MHC Family

Thank you for an amazing weekend!

Every autumn, we invite guests to our beautiful campus in October to experience Mount Holyoke's culture of academic excellence and vibrant co-curricular life. The weekend is designed to connect you to your student's life at the College as you participate in various receptions, performances, master classes, and information sessions.

Programming begins on Friday afternoon with the MHC LEAP Symposium, the College's annual showcase of student research projects and internship experiences, and is followed by the MHC Jazz Ensemble's concert that evening. All families are encouraged to join us when they can.

This website offers an overview of what to expect during Family & Friends Weekend. Choose one or two events, or choose them all—it’s up to you. Keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change, so check back!

Please be aware that families and friends do not need to register to attend the weekend—just show up, and have a good time with your student.

If you have general questions, or require services because of a disability or special need, please call 413-538-2478 to make arrangements.

Join us for a fun, relaxing fall weekend on Mount Holyoke’s beautiful campus. Visit the Weekend Calendar for a full list of events. Events will be added throughout the summer before the weekend. Right now we have last year's events listed, for reference.
