New Student Orientation begins

This is a past event.

Orientation will be in Moodle with an array of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (recorded) content. Asynchronous, on-demand content allows new students to self-pace through required components including community guidelines, Be Well programming, academic success, getting involved, and much more. 

New students will also be able to engage in synchronous, live content for opportunities to meet other new students, build connections, and develop community. Synchronous, live sessions include small assigned Orientation groups, social programming, and online drop-in hours with staff such as deans, Library, Information, and Technology Services (at MoHome, known as LITS) and more must-know members of our community who cannot wait to welcome you to Mount Holyoke. Our hope is to offer in-person orientation components specific to the on-campus experience for new students who are able to join us in person in August. More details and information will be sent to new-student Mount Holyoke email addresses later in July.

Aside from not knowing a time for orientation to begin, with students and families waiting to hear, there wasn’t much for students. The first years are traveling from many areas, some from quite a distance and they are depending upon MHC to connect with them, to help them feel safe and engaged. There also was NO programming for families. We created family accounts but there was literally NOTHING for us. We are about to drive 900 miles to drop off our daughter in the midst of a pandemic. Surely MHC could have engaged families even minimally on the first day of orientation. If families were not supposed to be included, MHC should have clearly communicated this and let us know what to expect.

Our family is very committed to the college and we want to be as supportive as possible. We leave this review in the hope that orientation can be improved quickly.
