Pictured above: Students having tea at social gatherings. The first picture was from around the 1920′s, while the second picture is from the 1950′s. The second picture shows a group of students from Japan, China and the United States enjoying themselves by having tea together. 

Did you know that tea was the focus of social gatherings in the 1920′s? If students were to look at pictures of dorm rooms from the 1920′s, they may notice each room had the requisite round table, embroidered tablecloth and appropriate tea service. 

Whether or not you like drinking tea, the Archives and Special Collections hope you take some time out and relax with friends even as finals week draws near. Take care of yourselves!

As women’s colleges everywhere start to reconsider their policies regarding the matriculation of trans women, Mount Holyoke College still hasn’t made much progress. To raise awareness and momentum toward change, a campus organization called Open Gates walked around on Pangy Day (an MHC tradition) and took pictures of students and alums sharing why trans inclusion is so important.

Women's Colleges to Homophobic, Racist Trump Surrogates: Come At Us, Bros
Steve Bannon has a new enemy: some of the smartest women in the country. Bannon, you may recall, once tried to defend conservative women by saying that liberals hate them because they aren't "a bunch of dykes who came from the Seven Sisters schools."

“In response to his appointment to the president-elect’s cabinet of curiosities, Smith College, one of the Seven Sisters and my alma mater, posted this open letter to Bannon yesterday:

It’s signed by Smith’s president, Kathleen McCartney, and the presidents of Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Vassar, and Wellesley Colleges, as well as the dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard.”
