Family and Friends Weekend Set for October 22–24

Family and Friends Weekend, scheduled for October 22–24, promises plenty of events providing insight into the intellectual, social, and spiritual opportunities that abound on campus. Formerly known as Family Weekend, the weekend has been renamed to better include students whose families are unable to attend. Activities on campus include annual traditions such as open houses, hikes, sporting events, plant sales, talent shows, concerts, canoeing, and religious services.

Learning opportunities include presentations by the WEED Fellowship recipients and Mount Holyoke Summer Research Fellows and several master classes, including “From Procrastination to Persistence: Understanding the Motivation of College Students” and “Current and Future Missions to Mars: Unlocking the Secrets of the Red Planet.”

Education is balanced with entertainment throughout the weekend, including “Street Theatre,” singing, juggling, rapping, and acting by College theatre arts students; “Families Dancing,” a concert by faculty, alumnae, and other artists from the region; movies; and a haunted house for all ages, sponsored by La Unidad.

For additional information and a schedule of events, go to the Family and Friends Weekend 2004 website.
