Welcome to the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit!
On January 22, 2023 many Asian countries celebrate the arrival of the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit. It is a time for family and friends to gather to spend time with each other, share a meal, and greet each other with lucky sayings.
This year MHC alums, professors, staff members and students from all over the world joined together and continued the tradition of wishing everyone a happy and healthy Lunar New Year in a very special video project, launched by Eleanor Chang ’78, and supported by the Mount Holyoke Global Alum Alliance and a team of volunteers.
Greetings were edited by Beier Yao ’13 of Boston into a video set to yangqin music played by Bingyao Liu ’19 of Melbourne and shared on social media during the Lunar New Year period.
Mount Holyoke has a truly global alum community where 15% of the alum population is international. The Lunar New Year video greetings initiative shows that the global alums form a cohesive network with amazing strength.
Watch the video greetings and celebrate with our global alums: Happy Year of the Rabbit!
