Celebrating Convocation 2004: The “Greening” of MHC

Seniors Kristel Thompson and Jennifer Gomez

Green “things” sprouted with the light autumn rain at Mount Holyoke on Wednesday, September 8. At the convocation ceremony held in Chapin Auditorium to usher in the College’s 168th academic year, no leaf was left unturned. It was all there, from emerald and olive green to pine and viridian green. One student was bundled in the deep green curtains of her dorm room, another was tightly wrapped in green cling film by the designer Saran. Chapin resounded with peals of applause from the College community as the class of 2005 processed amidst all that green—the class color for this year’s seniors—in black caps and gowns. more>
