Mount Holyoke Forever Shall Be

Alumnae recall their time at Mount Holyoke during Reunion festivities

More than 1,200 alumnae from generations that span nearly a century traveled back to campus from around the globe for a single shared cause—their love of Mount Holyoke College. From thought-provoking Back-to-Class sessions to outlandish parade costumes to M & Cs with classmates in the dorms, the two weekends of Reunion were filled with alumnae celebrating their connections to one another and to the beautiful oasis they still call home.

After the laurel parade, alumnae gathered in Chapin Auditorium for the 143rd Annual Meeting of the Alumnae Association. Association President Marcia Brumit Kropf ’67 presented volunteer and achievement awards to thirteen alumnae, and the College recognized advancement award recipients. Between these presentations, representatives from each returning class were invited on stage to read from their class’s histories. Though each history told a unique story, all expressed the shared experiences of what it means to be a Mount Holyoke alumna.
