Save the Date...
32 Flavors and
Ani DiFranco is coming to Mount Holyoke! She'll perform in Chapin
Auditorium on April 30. Tickets for the MHC community went on
sale January 26, one week in advance of any other public sales.

Thanks to the Environmental Action Coalition and student Eco-Reps,
Mount Holyoke will participate in Recyclemania, a ten-week nationwide
competition to see which college campus can collect the largest
amount of recyclables. This year's competition, which starts January
30 and runs through April 9, includes 49 colleges and universities.
Each of the Five Colleges is participating for the first time.
At the end of the competition, the campus with the highest recycling
rate per person receives a trophy, as well as a half-page spot
in the newspaper of every participating college and university.
Scorekeeping will be done by the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's WasteWise program, the sponsors of the event. MHC will
be measuring by dorm. Student volunteers will tally the results
and submit them to Nancy Apple, the director of safety and environmental
affairs. The dorm with the highest rate of recycling per student
will receive a prize. For more information, go to www.recyclemania.com.
