Mountain Day Reunions

On Tuesday, October 3, 2017, Mount Holyoke alumnae held Mountain Day Reunions in 163 cities and towns around the globe in honor of the College tradition that dates back to 1838. From Massachusetts to Malaysia, alums jumped into action after the bells were rung.🍦

Mountain Day Reunions were started in 2011 by a few very homesick golden sphinxes following their graduation and led by Meredith Nelson ’11. The way it works is simple: When the bells toll on Mountain Day the reunions begin! Events will be held at all locations on the map below at 6:37 p.m. (18:37) local time unless otherwise indicated by the host. Be sure to connect with the host, let them know you’re joining and share the event with friends.

Host a Mountain Day Reunion:

  1. Decide on your ice cream shop or other gathering place. (Check the map to see if another alum has already pinned that location. It’s amazing how often we get duplicates. Great opportunity to co-host!)
  2. Submit the details to us.   
  3. Watch your event appear on the event map (within two business days). You can zoom in and out on the map by clicking the plus (+) and minus (-) signs in the bottom right hand corner of the map or by pinching on a mobile device.
