Giullietta, because we met...

By MHC Development on October 28, 2015 at 1:08 PM


Students and crew of the Sea Education Association's (SEA) Semester S-191 in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2004.

"Giulietta, I still tear up when I think of the day you and Gail [Hudson '60] welcomed my ship at the dock in Honolulu. There I was, sad that no one will wait for me because my family was far away, only to look up in disbelief to see that two smiling MHC women were the only people at the dock! Welcoming not just me but our entire ship.

For whatever reason, you gave me so much love and care and made my time in Hawaii unforgettable: from my internship at the Governor's office to the apartment near the beach to my getaways on Maui.

Giullietta Swenson, because we met, I was able to call paradise my home, to care for it and appreciate it like you do. Thank you from all my heart." —Natalia Stefanova '05

Bees benefit farmers by pollinating their crops, which increases the quality and the quantity of their agricultural yield, also allowing farmers to augment their income through the sale of honey. In addition, Under the Mango Tree has also helped 3,000 people in six states to gain market access to their products.

Olivia is an international relations major at MHC. She's having an amazing experience so far and is grateful for funding through The Lynk that made this internship possible. She recently blogged about visiting farmers in Hoshangabad:

The road to Hoshangabad began at the break of dawn, yet the crowded streets suggested a later time of day. Our cab darted and weaved through seas of people though there was seemingly nowhere to go, as most shops had yet to open. I was glad to leave the bustle of the city for the wider, and comparatively bare streets of the highway...

Mount Holyoke highlighted by the Association of American Colleges & Universities for its Signature Work in community engagement and applied learning

By MHC Development on July 23, 2015 at 9:19 AM

In the centennial annual meeting of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), President Carol Geary Schneider '67 called on colleges and universities to engage students in "signature work" that prepares them to integrate and apply their learning to real-world issues. A recent article in the AAC&U's Liberal Education highlights MHC's signature work with programs such as The Lynk, the College's curriculum-to-careers initiative. Students are required to participate in an applied learning experience outside of the classroom after their sophomore or junior year.
