We’re looking forward to another amazing weekend!

Every autumn, we invite guests to our beautiful campus in October to experience Mount Holyoke’s culture of academic excellence and vibrant cocurricular 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 guests are encouraged to join us when they can.

This website offers an overview of what to expect during Family and Friends Weekend. Choose one or two events, or choose them all—it’s up to you. Visit the Weekend Calendar for a full list of events that have been confirmed.
