September 1, 1996

Yes, that’s the date that most of us moved in to MHC for our first year. 14 years ago today.

I remember crying before I even got to the College: my mom kept assuring me that I didn’t have to go if I didn’t want to. I arrived looking a little disheveled from the tears that I cried while still about a mile down the road. “Mom, I want to go! I’m just nervous! Please, stop asking me!” Very shortly afterward and in the days to come, I met some of the women who would become my closest friends. I’m certainly glad I stayed. 🙂

What are your memories of that day?

Make plans with your favorite MHC-types for Saturday, September 25, the Class of 2000’s official pre-planned Mountain Day so you can continue to create new MHC memories!

MHC-related Gifts

Looking for a little something special? The Class of ’92 recently sent us a note that they have created an ornament to commemorate the inauguration of the new President of the College. It’s shaped like the Field Gate and you can find out more about it here:
