Family Weekend Set For October 25-27

Family Weekend, scheduled for October 25-27, promises plenty of activities on campus for Mount Holyoke students and their families, as well as time to take in the turning of the leaves or even the view from Mount Holyoke—the mountain, that is. In addition to annual traditions such as open houses, hikes, sporting events, talent shows, plant sales, concerts, and haunted houses, as well as regularly scheduled religious services, this year’s program includes tours of the newly renovated Mount Holyoke College Art Museum and Kendade Hall, the recently constructed heart of the College’s new unified science center. Those new facilities will also be highlighted in two special events during the weekend.

Friday evening, the theatre arts department will present Thomas Cole: A Waking Dream (see article). Saturday afternoon, following a welcome address by President Joanne V. Creighton, members of the science faculty will talk about their work and how their new shared space in Kendade encourages collaboration and interdisciplinary education.

Other learning opportunities include Weed summer research fellow presentations on topics ranging from the formation of Shi’ite militant groups to class and housing in the black community; master classes such as Life in the Age of Biotechnology and Vision Research: Psychology, Computer Science, and Virtual Reality; and the lecture “Monet and the Tourist View,” by Robert Herbert, MHC Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts.

Music celebrations are scheduled for both Friday and Saturday, with jazz vocalist Kim Zombik performing after Friday night’s dessert reception, and more than two hundred students participating in a one-hour Saturday concert featuring Mount Holyoke’s Orchestra, Concert Choir, Glee Club, Chamber Singers, and Family/Daughter Choir.

For additional information about Family Weekend, visit or check the College Street Journal calendar.

The counter is 2,845
