Edwina Cruise who spoke to us at our 35th reunion was the first post-grad honorary. 


After our 50th we welcomed Eleanor Townsley who inspired us all with her immense help at our Seminar Day.



No reunion was ever complete without listening to Vinnie Farraro. We are delighted to claim him as one of our own.

​The little arrow at the left hand top of your screen (pointing backwards) will take you back to wherever you were on your last screen. It is not necessary to find the "back to homepage" button each time.
As you all know our class has elected special faculty who we feel have been especially close to our
 class over the years.
We all know that our 1955 Honorary Vinnie Ferraro is our most popular lecturer when we go back for our “Back to School” mini every fall. Here’s the exciting news. He writes a blog. A what you say? A Blog called World Politics. What it means is that we can access that blog anytime just by signing up to receive it over our email. Then you can read it, save it, delete it, whatever, but you”ll be connected to Vinnie’s thinking and teaching of World Politics from your iphone or computer whenever you want.

To sign up for his blog go onto google and type in vferraro1971 and the form to sign up will become available. 

Happy Politics!

EXCITING NEWS!
Back when we were planning our 50th reunion (can we remember back that far?) we asked everyone to please send us their memories of Mount Holyoke. Back then everyone cooperated and actually did it. Not all of them could go into our presentation or our book but now on our website we have unlimited space so we thought we should share some more of these 
wonderful memories.

Our latest memory comes from
Barbara Gates Johnson


Others are from Deb Hazzard Nash,
Gay Hartman, and Pat O'Keeffe,Barbara Muehrcke Allen, et al.

We hope that these entries will
 inspire you to think of some of your memories to share with our class. 
We are ready and waiting for more 
so send them to Wink

How Much Does College Really Cost?



“It is an understatement to say I am excited to join the vibrant and dynamic Mount Holyoke community. ... There hasn’t been a more important and critical time in recent history in which we need students who are empowered through their liberal arts education to go out and improve communities both here in the United States and around the world.”
