The Frances Perkins Program
Students in the Frances Perkins Program for women of nontraditional age describe what they've experienced at Mount Holyoke: an academically challenging environment, a strong support network, dedicated classmates, and accessible, committed professors: "No matter where you enter their classroom, they will move you to the next level."
As an FP, should I live in a ResHall?
Some students in Mount Holyoke's Frances Perkins Program (FP) live on campus, some commute. FPs (students of nontraditional age) talk about the quiet rooms and friendly community at Pearsons Annex (a res hall just for FPs), and events at the FP House (like movie nights and lunches with Peer Mentors). A big Victorian house with beds for overnight stays, a kitchen, living room, and computer lab, the FP House is "home base" for commuting FPs.
