September 1, 2016-

The MHC Calendar has a brand new look! The system upgrade includes a new aesthetic, as well as more social networking tools and enhanced search options. The previous calendar included only those events hosted on our campus that are open to the general public, because not all events hosted on our campus are intended for public participation.

With the new MHC Calendar the most significant and exciting feature is the option for students, faculty, and staff to login, using their MHC credentials, and view events that are for MHC community members only. The creation of these semi-private calendars allows us to share the full range of events happening at any given time, and will help all event planners better navigate the vibrant co-curricular and social calendar of our community.

Students can see the private calendars for student org meetings, MHC student-only socials, and other student created programming. Faculty and staff see calendars listing professional development workshops and training opportunities, and employee-focused information sessions. It should also be noted that the events listed in the MHC Calendar and the new private calendars will also provide the event details included in the MyMountHolyoke Campus Events feed (coming soon).

Click on the Calendar link at the top of the Mount Holyoke College website and update your bookmarks accordingly.

If you have any questions or comments about the calendar, please direct them to Event Services.
