Happy Mountain Day!!

It’s here, it’s here!! Mountain Day 2019!  It was wonderful to connect with so many alums on October 2nd at Salt & Straw in SF and Little Giant Ice Cream in Oakland! We can’t wait to see y’all soon. 🍦#mountholyokeforevershallbe

If you have ideas for upcoming events, send us a DM! We’d love to work together 🙂 

September ’19 greeting

Fellow alums,

We are excited to share the details of several events coming this Fall, including two plays by alums: “White Noise” by Suzan-Lori Parks ’85 and “Bull in a China Shop” by Bryna Turner ’12. We also encourage you to participate in the annual Common Read with us! The College chose “There, There” by Tommy Orange, an author born and raised in Oakland, CA. We hope you’ll join us on October 16th for a conversation with Tommy Orange at the SF Main Library and for dinner/drinks and continued discussion afterward.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend our events, regardless of Club membership. We aim to support alums in the NorCal area by cultivating a community that is connected, informed, and involved in the life and work of the College. Any feedback or suggestions are greatly appreciated and welcomed.

Well wishes — The Board


Welcome to the Mount Holyoke Club of Northern California!

We serve Mount Holyoke College alumnae, students, and parents living in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. More than 1,000 alumnae live in our region. We invite you to be a part of our community by becoming a member, attending an activity, volunteering, or sharing your news.

The Mount Holyoke College Club of Northern California hosts many events each year with a range of topics and activities for all members of the club. One event the club is known for hosting each year is our formal tea service where alumnae mingle, dine on tea sandwiches and drink fine tea. The club also hosts a yearly Mountain Day Hike where we pack a lunch and set off on a moderate hike through some of the Bay Area’s nicest trails. Other events include happy hours, our yearly care package stuffing event for Bay Area first years known as M&Cs, and outdoor events ranging from walking tours, bicycle tours, and camping trips. We hope to engage as many alumnae as possible and always want to hear your ideas for new events.

The Mount Holyoke College Club of Northern California also wishes to give back with local charity events and a yearly travel award for a high achieving Bay Area student to use for a chance to come home for the holidays. The club loves supporting our own community members that are giving back in some way. Please feel free to reach out to a board member and share what positive work you are doing.

The Mount Holyoke College Club of Northern California relies on yearly dues to fund events and charity endeavors. We encourage everyone to attend one or several of our yearly events and to discover what a wonderful Mount Holyoke College community exists in the San Francisco Bay Area.
