BY FALGUNI BASNET ’21

“I went camping at Brighton State Park in Vermont, about 20 minutes from the Canadian border. Although it rained for three days straight, we didn’t let the weather get us down! We went on a beautiful hike and even took an accidental drive through Canada.” —Ellie Viggiani ’20

“I was in New York City. I went thrifting, and also went to the Guggenheim Museum with my friends. I also met some friends from high school, and had a big family dinner in Millwood.” —Minah Kwon ’20

“I traveled with fellow members of the Mount Holyoke Model United Nations team to the Boston Area MUN Conference … We had a blast representing Mount Holyoke, debating a number of topics in crisis committees and persevering.” —Deborah Kubwayo ’21

“The Nepali Student Organization (NEPSO) organized a momo night. We all gathered in the ACE house and I, along with my friends, taught people how to make momos, or Nepali dumplings. They turned out to be very tasty and we all had a fun evening together.” —Dikshya Neyohang ’19

The path from the library toward Porter Hall was often vacant over break.

“I basically had the campus to myself, I was basking in undisturbed peace. It really made me appreciate the beauty of the campus since I had the time to walk around. In this photo though, it was raining and I had just found out that the library was closed.” —Linh Nguyen ’21

“I visited Boston, and took one of the duck tours, which are great for sightseeing and very informative! I rode a World War II-style amphibious vehicle that took me around Boston and even into the Charles River!” —Julienne Niemskyi ’21

“Myself and the Outing Club (Grace Wheeler ’18, Millie Koong ’18, Zahin Islam ’20, Melissa Deodat ’18, Davan O’Donnell ’19 and Claire Weinberg ’20) camped in the Plymouth area over break. We went to the Cranberry Harvest Festival, visited the cranberry bogs and the Scituate lighthouse at sunset. We were lucky enough to be hosted by alum Holly Dolben ’71!” —Emma De Vera ’18

“A couple friends and I spent the long weekend in NYC. We spent some time exploring Central Park, Times Square, Koreatown (for karaoke) and the MOMA. And of course, it wouldn’t be a thorough trip to NYC without watching a Broadway show. So we decided on the new revival of ‘M. Butterfly,’ having all been in Professor Day’s Asian American literature course where it’s taught.” —Isabelle Kim ’18

“I took a PVTA bus and visited Amherst College because I had a rehearsal for a play they are producing named ‘Peer Gynt.’ It is a five-act play by the renowned Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen.” —Sabrina Yang ’21
