Mount Holyoke’s 166th Commencement Set for Sunday

If you like nonstop activity, Mount Holyoke will be the place to be between May 22 and May 25. While commencement, set for Sunday, May 25, at 10:30 am in Gettell Amphitheater, will be the icing on the cake, the days that precede the awarding of diplomas will be several layers thick with receptions, open houses, worship services, concerts, parties, and tours. Commencement activities begin Thursday, May 22, with Canoe Sing rehearsal at the Canoe House, a barbecue for seniors at the president’s house, and “Unplugged Perspectives,” billed as a “final lecture” during which three different topics pertaining to MHC life will be addressed by faculty and students. That event will be held in Pratt Hall. Events planned for Friday range from a horticultural walking tour of campus to a commencement concert to a senior slide show. Saturday will include an old-fashioned community picnic, baccalaureate, fireworks over Lower Lake, and Canoe Sing on Upper Lake, a tradition originally called Senior Serenade that dates to 1911. more>
