Reunion 2020: still so much to celebrate
The past few weeks have felt very different in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are not able to connect on the beautiful grounds of our alma mater this year, we have been heartened to see the indelible Mount Holyoke spirit continue to strengthen our community. Over these past few weeks we have seen alumnae support one another virtually from around the globe, classes continue to plan ways to connect and reminisce, and thousands of alumnae stepping up to ensure the well being of our students and the financial health of the College. In these trying times, when so much is unknown, what remains certain is Mount Holyoke.
Though we cannot currently come together on campus, we want to celebrate the tremendous outpouring of support for the College, particularly from our intrepid reunion classes — classes ending in 0s and 5s, as well as the class of 2018. As of May 17, 2020, reunion classes raised an incredible $2.3 million for the College, including $1.9 million for The Mount Holyoke Fund to date this fiscal year, with many classes surpassing their goals and rising to meet (and exceed!) challenges.
Just as Mount Holyoke will always be a part of us, you are a part of Mount Holyoke. Your stories, experiences, and contributions have shaped Mount Holyoke, and paved the way for future students to accomplish great things in the face of adversity.
Because of your support, Mount Holyoke forever shall be. Thank you!
