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 talk about the quiet rooms and friendly community at Dickinson House, a residence hall just for FPs, and special events for FP's, 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.
