What makes Mount Holyokes move-in day so #MoHome?

The O-Team! Via an in-depth Orientation, a warm welcome from alumnae of the 50-year connection class, and the first of many beloved Mount Holyoke traditions that kick off day one.

Orientation Fellow Kalyani Kannan ’17 began September 2, 2016, at 6:35 am. And ended it with the annual screening of Dirty Dancing in the Gettell Amphitheater. Kalyani transferred to Mount Holyoke in fall 2014 and has excelled at making Mount Holyoke #MoHome!
