Senior Class Calendar

Your senior year will be exhilarating and, at times, demanding. You will feel a mix of things — memories that stretch back to your first year as well as anticipation of the future. We encourage you to get the most that you can out of this last year at Mount Holyoke, and to take good care of yourselves through the process.

This page is a curated way for you to find events, programs, and offerings that are targeted to your experience as a senior at Mount Holyoke.
