Sophomore Class Calendar

Sophomore year is a time of imagination, discovery, and refinement. Who am I really? What skills do I need to develop? What fuels my passions? These are important questions to ponder as you move through the milestones of major declaration, choosing an advisor, or deciding to study abroad.

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


For Fall 2021, you'll find re-orientation events for the Class of 2024! Please know that re-orientation events, and their details, are accurate at the time of posting but details may change in the lead up to re-orientation. You should make sure to connect with your Re-Orientation Leader during re-orientation if you have any questions.
