Welcome to Mount Holyoke, new students! We’ve been getting excited for your arrival here at the Archives and Special Collections, so we decided to put together a few posts about the history of dorms here at MHC.
Featured in the first five photos are 1837 Hall, while the lower three depict scenes from student life in Prospect. Parties held in these dorms bordering Lower Lake used to be called ‘swamp parties’ - are any of you hoping fervently to be assigned to 1837 or Prospect Halls?
