I heard the faculty show happens once every four years- if this is the case what year will the next one be in?

Anonymous

It’ll be in 2018. Dear god. I will have been out of MHC for three years. NO THIS CAN’T HAPPEN

To the anon who was wondering about alcohol policies, someone who’s over 21 can keep alcohol in the room even if the roommate is underage.  However, ResLife will tell you that it has to be clear that it belongs to the person who IS of age, i.e. being only on the 21-year old’s side of the room. However, when it comes to room checks, there’s not a lot that CAs can do to discern whose side is whose.  Hope this helps!

What we’re getting at is keep your alcohol under your bed, and don’t let your roomie skim drinks off the top of the bottle when you’re not looking!

Hi! I've read MHC's policies on alcohol, and it seems you're permitted to keep alcohol in your dorm room if you're of legal drinking age. I'm just wondering if that is still allowed if you have a roommate who is under legal drinking age? Also, you're amazing!

Anonymous

Oooh, I’m not sure - I think it’s okay if it’s in the room and you’re over 21, but not if your roommate has access to it. Contact ResLife for an exact answer if it’s a huge worry!

And no YOU’RE amazing WOW thanks friend :) <3

You can totally find men on campus. I wasn't even looking for one when I found the guy I'm marrying this summer. They just tend to come in smaller, better-behaved groups than you might find at a co-ed campus. Women's colleges have men, just not flocks of bros.


Congrats on your impending nuptials! “Men, not flocks of bros” is a good descriptor.

definitely audition for vocal jazz! it's a fairly small group, so you'll get to know everyone well. also, the big broadcast (one of the jazz ensembles' spring productions) is a 40's-style radio show complete with period costumes and music, so that's tons of fun.

VOCAL JAZZ ANON, here you go!

Hi, I'd just like to debunk the rumors that men never show up on this campus. This is NOT TRUE. Men are at many parties hosted every weekend by student orgs, and I know of a lot of guys, especially from Hampshire, who take classes at Mount Holyoke. Most days on this campus, you will actually run into guys at one point or another. It's also super easy to take the PVTA to your local frat and get a dude there, if need be & half of our campus is on tinder and OKCupid... not unlike any CO-ED school.

Thanks, friend! :)

Agreed… when i was on my year abroad at Mount Holyoke College, the thought of all women for a year frightened me.. within moments of being at MHC however, i couldnt believe the amount of guys on campus and at times became a little absorbed with the MoHo spirit, finding it a little annoying at times when i’d spot guys on this all-women’s campus :p!! 

Thanks for the commentary! <3

Hi. Do you have to go into your required majors right away to become what you want to be during your first year here at Mount Holyoke?

Anonymous

Nope! You’re encouraged to play around first year, discovering what you’re interested in and fulfilling distribution requirements to determine your future field of study and additional interests.

Can you bring a guest to meals at the dining hall? How much does Sunday brunch cost?

Anonymous

You are allowed to, and I think Dining Services might start incorporating guest passes for meals starting next fall. Current prices can be steep - I think Sunday brunch is $9?

How does the monthly payment plan work? I've been trying to find information but all I know if that I have to pay to opt in?

Anonymous

So THIS is the MHC website page that talks about the payment plan - it’s a pretty dense wall of text so I’ll try to relay it simply here.

You do have to pay to opt-in each semester - $35. You can make the payments monthly using eCash or a credit/debit card. You’ll have to pay manually each month, it’s not deducted from your bank account automatically. Remember to re-enroll each semester! The payments will be divided equally among the months you’re paying for, and being delinquent on payment means holds on registration, housing, and other things!
