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.
