Class of 2017 Meet the Class of 1917!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to our new students!

As part of our welcome from LITS, we created an interactive online exhibit all about the Class of 1917 to give a more in-depth look at what college would have been like during their four years and also to help our new students think about what makes this college so special today.

Based on the letters and scrapbooks of three young women (as well as one class scrapbook), we've attempted to not only give the facts but to bring a sense of connection to these students. Hopefully the incoming students will make that connection and in turn find a deeper connection to Mount Holyoke.

The website is now live so feel free to peruse through!
