6:24PM - Need: Ride

Is anybody still on MHC's LJ still at MHC, haha?

I'm wondering if anyone on campus would be able to drive me to Bradley on Dec 22nd. I'd like to get to the airport around 9 AM, so we'd have to leave here between 7:30 and 8 AM depending on road conditions. I'll pay you $20! INSTANT HANDSOME MONEY

Current mood: hopeful

11:40AM - Yue Opera

Hello Mohos! I know this is a bit of a stretch, but did any of you attend the Yue Opera event a few weeks ago in Chapin? I am looking for a list of which operas she performed songs from, specifically the name of the last piece where the girl was dressing as a guy and trying to hint that she was a girl to this really oblivious guy. I've tried searching the website, but everything says "five traditional Chinese operas" and doesn't say which five traditional Chinese operas. If you could please help me out with this, I'd really appreciate it.

Monday, October 12, 2009


Hey fellow Mohos, I'm an MHC alum who graduated back in '08, and I have a family friend who has a bit of a problem. She is taking the GRE test Saturday, November 7th at Mount Holyoke at 8 AM, but lives two hours away and needs a place to crash. Unfortunately the last of my MHC friends graduated this year, and I don't really know anyone who goes there now who could put her up. Would you or anyone you know be willing to let her spend a night in their room?

Of course, I'm willing to return the favor, if anyone ever needs a place to crash in Cambridge let me know.

Thanks in advance!

2:23PM - Twittered!

Yesterday, the person who maintains the Mount Holyoke College Twitter feed put a link to this photograph on my website, and asked which building was in the background. (It's a photo from May Day in 1921.)

Within 15 minutes, I had three email messages identifying the building, and within an hour had four more, plus a query about putting it up on a Facebook page with a link to my website. The power of Twitter! I was delighted to get all the email about it. It turns out that someone in the Communications Office at MHC maintains the Twitter feed, and she wants to tweet about other items on my website in the future. Yay!

It inspired me to update the mystery photo and the featured photo on my website this morning. I have great intentions of changing them once a week, but it usually is longer than that.

7:34PM - does anybody even read this anymore?

Can anyone tell me what the singles in 1837 look like? Or better yet, does anybody have some generic pictures of them? (I'm so thrilled to have gotten a single that I don't even care about the negative aspects of 18.)

9:54AM - anyone else?

Just curious if anyone else is all of a sudden getting loads of mystery-shopper or regional-representative-needed spam in their MHC email inboxes. I got 3 today, 6 yesterday, and 1 the day before.

I forward my mhc email to my gmail account, and usually gmail's spam filter is good at picking this stuff out... all of a sudden it's failing :( I'm tempted to just turn off the forwarding because this is starting to bother me.

2:36PM - Protests at MHC

As an alum who feels terribly out of the loop, I was wondering if folks could shed some light on recent protests on campus. I ask after seeing this pic -> on the mhc flickr page.

The article can be found at, but you might need to be a registered online member to read it. So for those who are not, the article follows here in full:

8:44PM - Mount Holyoke/Smith


I was admitted to both Mount Holyoke and Smith, and am going through the very tough process of deciding between them. I'm leaning towards Mount Holyoke at the moment, but I've been going back and forth between them.

Can you guys give me any insight? Maybe on whats best/worst about them or differences to keep in mind about both? Anything would help!

Thank you!

ETA: I've chosen Mount Holyoke :). Thank you all so much!

Thursday, March 26, 2009


I was admitted ED, and am very very excited. I'm counting down the days :| unfortunately there are a lot of them left.

I made a community for my class: mhc2013. anybody else lurking here who was recently admitted? or anybody have advice for what to bring/what I should be doing at this point in time to prepare?

4:38PM - riding lessons


Could anybody tell me what Beginning Riding is like? I've ridden before, but it was a long time ago (like 5th grade) and I was thinking it might be fun to start again for the PE requirement, but I don't know anybody who's taken it before. Any general information would be great. Thanks!

3:44PM - Gaelic langauge classes?

Hi, I'm a first year student at MoHo and have been planning out how to fulfill all of the distribution requirements.

I've always wanted to learn Irish Gaelic and thought that since I HAVE to take a language, I might as well learn something that I'm actually interested in.

So my question: does anyone know if a Gaelic class is taught anywhere in the 5 colleges? I've tried looking at the 5 college course catalog but that site confuses the heck out of me.

9:39AM - Ride to Amherst?

If anyone is taking a class in the 5 college area, I need a
ride from MHC to Amherst College every weekday for a class.
I need to get to Amherst by 1pm every weekday, and back to
Mount Holyoke by 3:30pm. Anyone? Will pay for gas. Thank
