Welcome to Senior Symposium! Today we celebrate the many extraordinary achievements of the Class of 2021 -- their hard work, perseverance, and brilliance! We have designed this year’s Senior Symposium as a virtual, day-long event. We have 132 students presenting from all over the world on 34 panels in almost every discipline and major offered at Mount Holyoke. Seniors are conducting research on gene therapy, climate change, and preparing for the next pandemic. They are writing theses and capstone projects on the gothic, queer studies, persistent multi-robot formations, reproductive health, and the Chicago Teachers Union. They have created new choreography, novellas, short films, and sustainable designs for local New England farms. We also have students presenting about their LYNK and Nexus opportunities on a series of panels at lunchtime that we call mini LEAP.

Explore the schedule below to see all of the remarkable intellectual and creative accomplishments that Mount Holyoke students have achieved, even in the most challenging of times. A special thanks to the faculty and staff who have advised and supported the Class of 2021 in their endeavors.

Congratulations in advance to our Seniors who are presenting today and to all of our beloved students in the Class of 2021.


The 2021 Senior Symposium will be presented via synchronous Zoom panels. Video links will be available in the Panel information 10 minutes prior to the panel start.

LEAP - A Holistic Approach to Tech
Our panel brings together four unique experiences of interning in tech. In our panel, we will focus on different aspects of the tech field including front-end development, back-end development, product management, and areas in-between. We will explore some accomplishments as well as some challenges we faced during our internships: both the soft skills and the technical skills that we have gained during the experience, and how they prepared us in shifting from college to industry. We will consider common themes such as exploration, adaptability, time management, and how we navigated these over the course of our internship. We aim to construct a multifaceted and holistic view of interning in the tech industry.

LEAP - Behind The Scenes in Education
Although all of our internships took drastically different forms, we all worked within organizations that focused on education but did not take part in much direct instruction ourselves. We maintained contact with students and teachers, but spent most of our time writing materials of different sorts, including grant applications and community building articles. When instruction is running smoothly, students may not be aware of how much work outside of the classroom or tutoring session (perhaps a zoom session in the case of COVID) allows their learning to take place. In this panel, we will be exploring different kinds hidden/behind the scenes work that enable education organizations to function.

LEAP - Connecting to Land and Community Remotely and Physically
Our panel explores the different ways we built connections to land and people through our internships. Through the changing circumstances of 2020, we each developed new methods of connecting to communities and our environments. Some panelists worked in-person, exploring the physical aspects of that connection through sustainable farming practices and direct community outreach, while others worked remotely and studied how the past can inform the present as part of long-term, ongoing projects. Through our wide range of research, skills and experiences, we all came away from our summer internships with deeper understandings of ourselves and the ways in which we connect with communities, land, and environments.

LEAP - Consulting, Computers and Cognition: A liberal arts approach to data
This panel will cover four different internship experiences relating to data analysis. Majors in computer science, neuroscience, and politics brought each of us to a different side of data analysis. With these different perspectives, we aim to demonstrate the widespread possibilities surrounding data and research. Our internships ranged from a Washington-based health policy lobbying and consulting firm to the ACTnext standardized testing company, to a professor’s cognitive neuroscience lab from Mount Holyoke College, to a professor’s data analysis research team backed by Harvard University. We will discuss how the remote work environment posed unique challenges in learning and using data analysis techniques, and how our interests and goals shifted as a result of our experiences. Despite the challenges, our shared liberal arts background enabled us to think critically and persist through difficulties in learning new programs and techniques, and communicating with supervisors remotely.

LEAP - Creating and Engaging Within Education in Times of Dis-Orientation
2020 brought a variety of challenges, and some of these difficulties were reflected in the field of education. Our panel will focus on teaching in both remote and in-person settings, from planning and creating lessons and material, to engaging students and reflecting upon educational practice. While adjustments had to be made in this pandemic, we were able to learn to adapt to situations and hone management-related skills. We will be discussing our experiences, the teaching methods we used, as well as the skills that we learned.

This summer, our panel worked in a variety of positions in law and public policy. From global security research to legal business-related finance disputes to studying the use of data in international development, we experienced working in new environments in areas we’d previously been interested in. Olivia Yanchik worked as an Outreach Development and Research Intern at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, Regina Guo worked as a Legal Intern in GuoYao Law Firm, and Maggie Smith worked as Research Intern at the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics. Each of us found it valuable to gain a realistic perception of the areas we worked in, and while we all encountered unique challenges, we appreciated having a better understanding of our career goals moving forward.

LEAP - Facilitating Creativity
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a stark reminder of how important art and artists are to our society and culture. Despite restrictions, creativity has persisted, and the people on this panel worked to document, assist, and collaborate with artists from multiple disciplines. From working with musicians to poets, selling fine art ceramics, and storytelling, our experiences facilitated the creativity of others while also allowing us to develop a greater understanding of what it means to be an independent creative.

LEAP - How to Join and Work in Large Organizations: Basic Skills You Need to Know
Last summer, we all worked in China-based large organizations. We found that data analysis, communication, the ability to learn, and logical thinking are basic but important skills that interns need, especially in large organizations. Yuanyuan worked in a consulting firm and gained hands-on experience working with data. Jiayi worked in PWC and learnt to communicate with clients effectively. Yifan worked in an investment company and acquired knowledge in fields unrelated to her majors. Christine worked in Tencent Game, the largest video game vendor, and learnt to analyze and present her work in a logical way. 

Our panel will be particularly valuable for students who also want to work in Chinese large organizations. While talking about the skills we acquired and the challenges we faced, we will also share our feelings about the general operation of large organizations. We will also offer valuable tips on the job interview for those companies.

LEAP - Living through History: Researching, Fundraising, and Zooming
As a group, we each engaged in either fundraising or independent research. All of our work was either directly impacted by COVID-19 or studied it directly. Two of our group members did independent research associated with COVID-19, either with Zoom interviews or focusing on disability rights. The other two members of our panel worked in non-profit fundraising with the added layer of fundraising in a pandemic. Our talks collectively will touch on how COVID shaped our experiences, and how independent research and fundraising are important skills to develop for both researchers and those wishing to work in nonprofits. Finally, we all engaged with a global pandemic that required flexibility and adaptability. We will share how we each navigated a difficult transition to leverage our summers.

LEAP - Narratives Through Time
How do we record our stories? Who gets to say what makes it to the books? And what do these histories reveal about their subjects? From old to contemporary, this panel contains narrative across times, regions and positionalities. Concerning the official archive, one student—working with the Library of Congress’s Danish-American collection—dove into the history of publication and story-keeping. Another student spent the summer relaying an every-day collection of short poetry that speaks to the duality of the Caribbean diaspora. And in the vein of forging new stories, a student in collaboration with a published author, created a memoir detailing her journey to our very own Mount Holyoke. From all of place and time, these presenters collaborate to bring a diverse look at narratives from the past and present.

LEAP - Overcoming Challenges of Remote Biological Data Collection and Analysis
The importance of biologically-based research is relevant to countless fields and ever-expanding. Our internship experiences involved collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing data on a variety of subjects, all while coping with the challenges of remote research and education during a pandemic. Through our projects this past summer we explored environmental preservation, food safety, fruit fly genetics, as well as marine mammalian behavior. We each experienced a variety of challenges that taught us to adapt quickly, think critically, and develop leadership skills. Creating new methods, working with new tools, and managing time on our own pushed us all to become stronger, independent scientists. Join us to learn about overcoming the challenges of remote biology research.
